Experts suggest that the third world war will be fought over water. The predictions seem to be coming true considering Cape Town’s increasing water woes.
Cape Town is currently about to face the worst drought in this century. ‘Day Zero’ as it is being called, is the day when most of the water taps in Cape Town will be turned off. Water usage has always been a major problem in Cape Town as the affluent sections of the city.
However, the turning off taps is sure to affect the sections where people live in small settlements.
Rising tensions are creating a further rift between the two sections of the society, the rich and the poor. Cap Town, along with affluent neighbourhoods also have sprawling informal settlements.
As per experts, the easy use of water in the affluent neighborhoods via swimming pools and bath tubs need to be curbed if Cape Town is to avoid a complete shutdown of the supply of water.
Cape Town’s major water crisis is sure to cause others across the world to ponder on how they can prevent a reoccurrence of a similar crisis.
It is up to us to ensure that such a situation does not arise in our country. Cape Town’s Day Zero is a wake-up call for us conserve water and use sparingly to avoid a major water crisis in India.
Not only should we save our rivers we should also utilize water with much caution.
