Making the citizens aware of the importance, supply, and preservation of water is important. Yet, this education has to be extended and drilled into the minds of government, city planners, developers, and interested Ministries for them to make actions to maintain the resource.

It is too often the compulsive need and greed for uncontrolled development to build up the country to acquire revenue blinds the developers and government from protecting its much needed resources.

The tourist zone of the east will be lacking water reserves in the future because it fresh water table is decreasing and there are no engaged plans to bring piped in water in from Higuey.
