New power and water campaign for Qatar
Authority hopes awareness campaign will ease pressure on utilities
A summer campaign to reduce the usage of water and electricity in Qatar has been launched by the country’s power and water authority, and will continue for three months.
It is hoped that the awareness campaign will help to ease pressure on resources during peak summer usage times, after the authority put display boards in hypermarkets, taxis and buses, and ran adverts on television and radio.
There is also a ban on the use of potable water for washing cars or cleaning public yards with a hose, and failing to repair leaking or damaged pipework is also against the law.
