hose pipe ban 2 sides of story

Where we live we have just had a hose ban put in so i would not be able to waste a few gallons of water hosing a short footpath, well happy with that.

in the town centre this morning workmen are pressure hosing the massive pedestrian complex, i spoke to the water company who said its ok if they are a business no restrictions.

i feel wasting so much water on a job that does not need doing anyway is an insult to those abiding by the ban.

anyone else seen bad examples of water waste like this.

It wasn't all that long ago, when our local waterboard were stating that there would be no ban. Yesterday they seem to have changed their tune very quickly, because apparently they are now struggling to maintain supplies. And that's even after a few good downpours recently.

I have mentioned on this forum previously, that we had a rather large Victorian underground water storage unit not far from where I live. According to the waterboard, this was surplus to requirements, and the land was sold to property developer's for home building. It took months to remove the cast-iron storage unit, and the rather nice pump-house, and petitions and official investigations didn't prevent this destruction of a viable commodity and facility.

As this 'quick buck and profit' decision, now come back to haunt those responsible?.
