‘No Hosepipe Ban’ This Year

Unusually for lovely Pembrokeshie, there has been no rain for some time now and I am sure I am not the only one to be wondering how long it will be until there is a hosepipe ban.

Well, it seems that Welsh Water does not expect to have a hosepipe ban this summer at all.

With last year being the driest year since 1976 and with the warm temperatures, there was an increased demand for water which led to the reservoirs across the county becoming severely depleted. The resulting hosepipe ban in Pembrokeshire and parts of Carmarthenshire affected 60,000 properties and was in place between August and October.

But a spokesperson for Welsh Water has declared that this summer will be different.

It has also invested £10 million to improve the operational resilience of the network, and water resources being at normal levels for this time of year means it doesn’t foresee any issues with water supplies.

Sounds promising for the tomatoes, then.
