Thank You for Your Cooperation for Water-Saving
The water storage volume of those dams on the Tonegawa River system which are equivalent to approximately 80 % of the water sources for the Tokyo Water has been getting less and less.
As approximately 70 % of the water usage of the Tokyo Water is spent at home, water-saving by each Tokyoite at home is significantly helpful.
Your cooperation for water-saving would be greatly appreciated.
