It had to happen again, didn’t it? With water prices rising soon, with the government saying this is so that Singaporeans can understand the importance of water, another PUB pipe burst, showing just how important water is, and who the main culprits of wastage are.
The burst water pipe occured on Tuesday morning between two HDB blocks at Aljunied Crescent, affecting some 75 households. These households were provided alternative water supply from PUB and the Town Council. And less you hting this Aljunied blocks were in opposition ward, they are not. They are in the Marine Parade Town Council.
So, the PUB and Marine Parade Town Council better have a good explanation on why water pipe burst, and with it, gallons of water wasted.
