ANYONE who has lived on the island for a few years will remember the costly exercise of shipping water by the boat load from the Peninsula, or when the tap water was so bad people were going to the public fountains to fill bottles and the council made special deliveries of good quality water to hospitals. No one wants to return to those days, but we will have to learn not to waste water. Crespí says levels are now on a par with those of ten years ago. But the number of visitors is still increasing every year, and that means extra strain on supplies. Some years ago, EMAYA published fly sheets listing ten easy ways of saving water (turn the tap off when soaping yourself in the shower, don't leave the tap running when cleaning your teeth). Perhaps it is time it reissued the instructions and had them posted in hotel rooms.
