Singaporeans urged to save water

Minister for Environment and Water Resources Dr Yaacob Ibrahim urged Singaporeans to save water during the World Water Day 2010. Singapore faced a dry spell in February 2010, but instead of conserving water, Singaporeans used 6.6% more water compared to last year. PUB, along with Coca-Cola Singapore and the Singapore Scouts Association, are on a drive to get more to use water wisely.
On other news, Jurong GRC’s Bukit Batok Division is having a Water Festival on 18 April 2010. Organised by the grassroots organizations and the Myanmese community in Singapore, the Water Festival is a celebration to welcome the New Year in Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar and Laos. Participants will splash water at each other to wash away their trouble. 3000 people are expected to attend the Water Festival 2010.
I just checked the calendar. We are still 1 week away from April Fools’ Day.
