Is the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) really serious about water conservation?
Last week a huge leak sprung up in the middle of Rosalino Street in Woodbrook—large streams of potable water were gushing onto the road and wasting, not a pretty sight in a time of drought. Not being sure if the residents around that area had made a report, I took it upon myself to call WASA. On three separate tries to 800-LEAK I was caller #14, #18 and #17 and such long periods of time elapsed while I was on hold, I gave up in frustration each time and hung up. But, while on hold, an ad played repeatedly that one could use their mobile app and report the incident as well.

SUBSCRIBE/ LOG IN I downloaded the app and tried to make a report. Seems that one could not just leave a note or a location, one had to physically be at the leak to so do. Then, while there one had to take a photo within the app so they could geotag it and locate the leak promptly. Technology, boy— sounding great!
