Hosepipe ban starts this week

ANGLIAN Water’s first hosepipe ban for 20 years begins on Thursday, April 5 - in an affort to save water during the region’s worst drought for a century.

Under the terms of the ban, there will be a small number of exemptions to protect livelihoods and the infirm.

Customers can still water their gardens using a watering can and can clean their cars, provided they use a bucket.
