Government, Water Corporation kidding themselves

It’s not so much a PR response as a ridiculous way the Water Corporation looks at the problems Perth faces with its water supply.The Corporation continues to put its head in the sand (and there’s plenty of that in WA) over restrictions during summer. We have this roster system that allows you to water on certain days at certain times – all this in one of the driest places on earth.Yesterday the temperate rose to 37C and in Perth we consumed a billion litres of water. Today we hit 39C. It’s more of the same all week. The TV news says authorities are alarmed. Cripes, what did they expect. My wife rushed out to water the lettuce (not the lawn).For the life of me I can not understand why we allow watering of lawns … PERIOD. Hello. Lawns are weeds. If you want something good looking in front of your house, lay down some pebbles or some native shrubs.Many people are simply wedded to the idea they need a green lawn. For what?The government, though the Water Corporation, should simply get fair dinkum about this and start a PR campaign to change behaviour.Water is the most precious resource on the planet and we just pour in on weeds. It’s idiotic. More blog/s at The PR Lab
