Water, water, water, watt-er

Postby nakatago » Sun, 04 Jul 2010 12:39 pm

We all know that Singapore has concerns regarding drinking water supply. The agreement with Malaysia is not permanent and so the gahmen undertook the Marina Barrage, new water, the catchment basins and similar projects to address the uncertain water supply.

But then, I just looked out my window and saw a maintenance man using a water jet to clean the pavement. It was raining practically the whole day yesterday.
