Water, Bermuda: 2 reviews and 6 photos
Bermuda is surrounded by water. But it is salt. One of the problems for the early settlers was not being able to find any fresh water springs. Since then, some have been found, but it's not enough for everybody.
So Bermuda has strict rules. Each house must have a clean white roof and must catch the rainwater in a cistern for the use of the household.
When I was in Bermuda in 1963, I could look from my St. George hotel over to the catchment basins on the hill opposite.
Now there are desalinization plants. But Bermudians still collect water for their cisterns.
Photo was taken either from a tape (photographed TV) or a slide. The person on the roof is cleaning it.
