On summer and Water Consumption

This is the skylight of Al Ain Mall. Adorned and decorated with flowers and butterflies which implies the current season. On the contrary, summer heat here in the UAE is almost unbearable. Plants, trees and flowers cannot tolerate the extreme heat that we are experiencing nowadays. They are getting withered. 

My concern here is the water consumption. Sprinklers are almost on more than five times a day considering that water consumption in the UAE is amongst the highest in the world. People must learn how to conserve water. Blah, blah, blah..........Who cares? I don't know :( and it seems that it is falling flat on the residents' ears. I know that green looks good but so is brown and gray. I think during the summer season, planting flowers should be less, especially those that requires frequent watering. Aside from that, residents must find ways to conserve water.

By the way, Al Ain Distribution Company (AADC) is the sole distributor of water and electricity here in the Eastern Region of Abu Dhabi.

Word of the day:  nafarat is the arabic term for people. (singular = nafar). Salaam!

  1. What an important entry of yours !
    There were years over here, when people were asked to ration their daily water usage. So far, it hasn't been raining for more than two months now, and summer still is to come.
    Please have a nice Friday.

  3. This sounds reasonable..especially because as you've mentioned it is dry. Many people don't know how to conserve huh. Well this is a neat shot above captured as well as the sky and lighting in the second w/the spinklers on.. and ya-flowers do have a difficult time tollerating the heat.
    (btw) you know..you just made a comment didn't you? It was like I published it and poof..it disappeared..really strange? You didn't have any trouble did you? Anyway, hope you have a wonderful weekend.
