Undersecretary of Ministry of Electricity and Water Eng Mohammad Bushahri stressed the keenness of the ministry to achieve rationalization of water consumption and increase public awareness concerning this matter, reports Al-Kuwaitiah daily.

He revealed that Kuwait has the third highest rate of water consumption in the world, with per capita consumption of 450 gallons per day. He insisted that this issue requires legislations that can enforce penalties for excessive consumption of water.
