The Company said during dry seasons, consumers resorted to the use of treated water for.
keeping lawns green, for commercial washing of vehicles etc.
currently the dry season is on and consumers with greater dependence on rainwater have also.
compounded the problem by taking to treated water use.

Resources, and allied Ministries, to improve on raw water resources in the Country.
