The Minister of Housing and Public Utilities, Assem Al-Jazzar, revealed that the Drinking Water Regulatory Authority has been mandated to review the foundations and rules on which the measurements of water delivery to homes are assessed, and they will be reviewed at the corporate level in order to ensure that there are no burdens on citizens.
