Monday, 20th March, marked the beginning of Water Week Activities spearheaded by the Central Water and Sewerage Authority (CWSA), under the theme “Youth Sensitisation on Climate Change”.
The activities began with a Thanksgiving Service at the CWSA Headquarters in the morning, and are being held to coincide with World Water Day on Wednesday 22nd March.
Ms. Joan Ryan, Public Relations and Marketing Manager at the Central Water and Sewerage Authority, said over 100 staff members were involved in the Thanksgiving Service, which was led by Methodist Minister Monty Maule.
She added that this year the CWSA is seeking to sensitise young people about the effects of Climate Change, and must be prepared for extreme dry spells from this issue.
Ms. Ryan also said that several other activities are planned for Water Week, which include Customer Appreciation Day, community activities and as well as hosting of secondary schools at a Career Day Fair.
