Apparently we’re all using too much water and if we continue in the same manner the government will be forced to ban sprinklers.
The Canberra Times reports that our water consumption is 11 per cent above what it should be under the Stage 2 restrictions.
Despite the amounts of times it’s rained recently, rainfall is still at some kind of record low and Actew says this is concerning. They want all the plebs out there to “take restriction requirements seriously” and stop doing non-report deals with their neighbours.
The good news is that we’re still better off than Goulburn.
[ED – It’s a shame the Stanhope Government failed to understand the difference between emergency measures which people will support in the short term, and permanent measures which they might not, you can only go to the well of good will so many times]
