This photo was taken this morning in Gungahlin.
Whilst we all attempt keep within the water restrictions why should a big truck like this who claims to use tank water be allowed to fill up from the mains water supply?
UPDATED: Eggman has added the following update:
- i got a reply from actew as follows:
Thank you for your email.
I have confirmed with ActewAGL’s Water Division that the operator
pictured is licensed to take water from Actew’s potable network.
The company pictured has a contract to extract water and use it in the
course of their landscaping business activities. These ’standpipes’ are
metered and water consumed is charged at the highest billing rate
(currently $3.70 per kilolitre). Businesses permitted to use metered
standpipes must abide by the Stage 3 Water Restrictions.
Please contact the Water Conservation Office if you require further
information or assistance.
