You would think an intelligent Government would be worried more about how much water you use, and less about exactly what you do with it. Home brewers, for example, can use vast amounts of water in their sheds, laundrys and kitchens, but fly entirely under the radar in the current scheme.
The Canberra Times informs us that our Government is not of the intelligent sort. Despite current water restrictions doing little good they’re going to try and squeeze the conscientious citizens a little harder with stage three restrictions which ban even water efficient drip irrigation systems.
Because in Stanhopia, it needs to be written down if you’re going to be allowed to do it.
The best thing is that even if we manage to dramatically slash water use they’ll then have to just dump water in the river to maintain the environmental flows.
Enjoy the hand watering!
