Issue being discussed:
A critical component for Singapore to import water from Malaysia, the Linggiu Reservoir, is facing an all-time low in water levels and this is a source of concern, according to Environment and Water Resources Minister Vivian Balakrishnan on Monday 3/8.

Opinion:
From Facebook post regarding this news, a netizen told people to "Please save water"
I agree with him. Water is a very precious resource, and we might not know when we would run out of clean drinking water here in Singapore. We may have the 4 national taps to supply us we enough water every day, but I think we usually take water for granted. There will always be water when we on our taps, but we do not realise that without water, we are not able to do our daily activities, and we will also not be able to survive without clean drinking water as well. I think low water levels serve as a reminder to all of us that, water is precious. We need to be cautious of what we use it for, and we should never waste water. We must always learn to conserve water, and use water wisely.
