This photograph was taken at Wied il-Qlejqa, mostly known as Chadwick Lakes.
The water shown in this photograph is being absorbed by the rocks but what about the other water that is left? Probably, this precious water would get lost in the sea or cause flooding in the nearby streets. After a few days this water would result in a viscous green soup of algae, resulting in the collection of various insects in the area. Children could easily fall in this murky water.
1 in 8 people in the world do not have clean water. So why not make good use of this water once we have it?
Without a doubt this rainwater can be collected in large reservoirs and used for agriculture.
