The following is one in a series of articles designed to raise awareness and encourage public engagement on
the revision of the National Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) Policy being undertaken by
the Ministry of Public Utilities. Contributions from the public will inform a final document that will frame the
country’s management of water resources.
Water. We all know that we can’t live without it. In fact, our days start and end with water (think
about that first cup of coffee or that late-night trip to the bathroom). But as is the case for most
essentials, we tend to take it for granted, until we find ourselves in the situation where there
isn’t enough of it. Something as indispensable as water, however, should never be overlooked,
especially when the ways in which we perceive, use and manage it can impact its future
And so, let us begin by taking a reality check. How do we use water? And in what amounts?
The average household utilises a lot of water on a daily basis. Each shower, toilet flush, laundry
load, and cooked meal adds up to a daily use of about 300 gallons. And then, of course,
there are other sectors which utilise this most precious resource in varying but necessary ways.
Tourism, manufacturing, energy, agriculture – these all use millions of gallons of water on a daily
basis. Take for example, the process of refining oil. According to the United States Environmental
Protection Agency, it takes 1,851 gallons of water to refine a 42 gallon barrel of crude oil.
Our dependence on water at the individual and industrial levels should come as no surprise
when we consider its properties as well as its biological functions. Water, or H2O, is also known
as the universal solvent because it dissolves more substances than any other liquid. This means
that wherever it goes, across land masses or through our bodies, it carries chemicals, minerals,
and nutrients, among other things. This role of ‘carrier’ makes it essential to life as we know it.
Without water, the cells that constitute all living things would not be able to receive nutrients
or dispose of waste. In the household, water’s properties are useful for washing away dirt and
grime and for preparing the food that we eat. And at the industrial level, its solvent and cooling
properties are used for manufacturing things like food, medicine, fertilisers, and paper.
Of course, water’s ability to ‘carry’ minerals and other substances can have a negative effect in
certain scenarios. Polluted rivers, for example, can distribute toxic chemicals that poison flora
and fauna while compromising the quality of water available to households and consumers.
Water, then, must be managed in a way that ensures sustainability in terms of quantity and
quality. This is the overarc hing goal of the new Integrated Water Resource Management Policy.
The policy, which is currently undergoing revision, is based on internationally recognised best
practices that promote the co-ordinated development and management of water, land and
related resources. We invite your input and your cooperation as we seek to develop and
implement solutions and strategies that will ser ve Trinidad and Tobago’s water needs for
decades to come. Your Water, Your Life!

Dortmund agreed to
the rapid reschedul-
ing of its Champions
after the German club
complained about be-
ing forced to play a day
after its bus was tar-
geted by bombs.
After losing 3-2 to
Monaco yesterday, Dort-
mund coach Thomas
Tuchel said his players
wanted more time to
recover from the previ-
ous day’s attack that left
defender Marc Bartra re-
But UEFA said Dort-
mund was satisfied
with playing the first leg
against Monaco just 24
hours after three devices
packed with metal pins
detonated close to the
“The decision to play
the match today at 18.45
(local time) was made
last night at BVB stadium
in cooperation and com-
plete agreement with
clubs and authorities,”
director Pedro Pinto told
The Associated Press.
“We were in touch
with all parties today and
never received any infor-
mation which suggested
that any of the teams did
not want to play.”
Tuchel felt that UEFA
had not taken the at-
tack seriously enough
and claimed “we wer-
en’t asked at all at any
time” about whether to
proceed with the game.
“Basically, we had
the feeling that we were
being treated as if a beer
can had hit our bus, and
half an hour later the de-
cision was there that (it
would be) tomorrow at
6.45 p.m.,” Tuchel said.
“That gives you a feeling
Despite the congest-

months of the season,
Dortmund believed the
game could have been

The second leg is being
played next Wednesday
“We were not attacked
on the field by an oppo-
nent; we were attacked
from inside the bus as
men,” Tuchel added in a
broadcast interview with
former Norway interna-
tional Jan Aage Fjortoft.
“Of course this has
an effect and it was a
terrible experience for
all of us. We wanted to
have a bit more time to
deal with it. We didn’t
get the time.
“The team wanted
so badly a bit of time to
deal with it so we were in
our best shape because
the dream is to go to the
semifinals in Europe.
“We had the feeling
today everybody that we
are not in the best shape,
not focused enough for
football. Who will blame
us for that? Nobody.”

“I have a bit more ex-
perience than my play-
ers and I told them not to
worry so much about it,
try not to think so much
about it, it does not get
better,” Tuchel said.
“Everybody has the
right to deal with it the
way he wants to. If you
want to talk about it,
“If you want to be
silent, be silent. If you
find someone who hugs
