It is reported by Today's Focus that the local policy on drinking water in Wu Han city has resulted in serious problems such as fee soaring and water resource wasting.
According to the policy, the price of civil drinking water is based on the standard of industrial water. But, the prices of the two kinds of water are quite different, and that's how the local water-supply company makes money.In fact, the water- supply company should be a nonprofit organization, but now it becomes a machine of earning money from citizens by manipulating the market.From this phenomenon,we can easily associate some other social problems such as corruption and illegal activities. All of these do great harm to our country.
In my opinion, the irresponsibility of the water- supply company will cultivate and encourage people's dishonesty. In order to save money, people cheat the water- supply company by playing tricks on water meters. It not only causes great waste of water but also disturbs people' s normal life. In the past, one family couldn't use more than 5 tons of water per month, but now, one family can use 150 tons on aver- age, and they pay the same as they used to. At present, water resource is extremely limited, so saving water is a responsibility to every person.But how can people be willing to save water voluntarily since there is such an unfair and unreasonable policy on drinking water's price?
So, more attention should be paid to all of the social problems.What' s more, the system of legislation should be improved,theconstructionofcivilization should be emphasized and the efficient action should be taken so that the idea of "Three Representatives"can be put into practice.
