Water is indeed a precious resource locally. Since most of the rain usually falls between October and March, its scarcity during the summer months creates a huge quandary for local farmers. The picture was taken after an abrupt storm but it can be easily noticed that the water run-off is huge. Unfortunately a large amount of run off rain water ends being lost since it finds its way back to the sea. It would be great if more reservoirs could be built, maybe under new apartment blocks in order to make better use of this resource. This the way forward for sustainability.
