“While our water storages are in a good position, there is still an influx of visitors and holiday homeowners this time of year, meaning that there is an increased demand for water,” he said.
“Permanent water saving rules still apply, so we all need to remember to water our gardens between 6pm and 10am, sweep and not hose down pathways and driveways, and install trigger nozzles on all outside hoses.”
