Eda Ranu: Use water wisely

Port Moresby City residents are been urged to use water wisely and more importantly save water whenever possible.

Eda Ranu’s Chief Operating Officer Dr Fifaia Matainaho says residents, businesses, and companies need to seriously look into how it can minimise the use of water.

He says everyone should cut their usage of water by 50 percent.

“ I would encourage residents or communities, businesses to start using water bore, ”Matainaho urges.

He says the more water is preserved the better it will be for everyone during this time when there is uncertainty with rainfall.

Eda Ranu is asking people to use water wisely by:

  • Spending less time in the shower

  • Use buckets to wash your car

  • Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth

  • Fill up the sink with water when doing the dishes rather than continually running the tap.

  • Find and fix any leaky faucets.( •A faucet leaking 60 drops per minute will waste 192 gallons (726.8 litres)

Water rationing in the city will continue until such a time the water levels are back to normal.
