‘While our Multiple water boards have to date done a sterling job in the management of scarce water resources, more work still need to be done.
‘We are looking forward to working closely with the board to address the most pressing water-related challenges, particularly the limited supply of water to consumers and business as a result of wide-ranging water cuts.’
