Sir, - Yes, it's about time we conserved water seriously ("New regulations for watering lawns," May 5). Successive governments have lowered the Kinneret's "red line" much lower than it should be.
But recommendations like "make your showers two minutes shorter" are terribly "wishy-washy." People can't judge such a thing. They should be told to use a timer to time their showers to three minutes maximum, and turn off the water while soaping. (Dishes, too.) That would save a lot of water.
Last week in Jerusalem, I photographed two people using a high-pressure water hose for cleaning. I posted it on YouTube.
They also deleted the link to my youtube. I wonder if anyone will find it. At least they spelled my name right.
