“Meet Ajman’s residents” initiative, aimed at offering an opportunity for dialogue and exchange on the importance of responsible water and energy use

Ajman homeowners have been encouraged to use water and energy responsibility as well as adapt a conscious attitude towards the environment to protect the emirate’s precious natural resources.

Representatives from Ajman Sewerage and their Community Care Foundation embarked on a two-day “meet Ajman’s residents” initiative, aimed at offering an opportunity for dialogue and exchange on the importance of responsible water and energy use in their respective homes and on Ajman Sewerage’s customer services.

Over 100 households were visited on January 17 and 18 and they were provided water-saving devices to help conserve water. The devices will help in controlling the water flow. Over 500 water-saving devices have been distributed so far.

According to Ajman Sewerage, consumers use around 500 liters of water and between 20-30 kilowatt hours of electricity a day, more than twice the international average consumption. Reiterating the importance of judicious water and energy use, Christophe Ledur, Ajman Sewerage’s general-manager, pointed out the need to be environmentally aware.

“As a key stakeholder, we are playing our part in encouraging Ajman’s citizens to share their feedback with us and to use water and energy sparingly and responsibly.” said Ledur.

Residents have also been sensitised about high-volume water usage such as watering lawns or gardens, car washing and long-lasting leaks, as they all contribute to water wastage. Parents have been advised to teach their children about the importance of water conservation.
