We’re one of the richest countries in the region in terms of water, yet we have water shortage all year long and just like we pay two electricity bills, we also have to pay a water bill for the state and another water bill for the private water suppliers. It’s a great business especially in summer but most of these suppliers have dug illegal wells and are basically selling water illegally.
Lebanon’s water crisis will persist as long as there’s no management of these wells and people are paying the same price for water no matter how much they use.
On a less serious note, that’s one funny water truck slogan 😛
