St Helena : WATER SHORTAGE ON ST HELENA UPDATE
Submitted by Saint Helena Herald (Public Relations Information Office) 25.05.2013 (Article Archived on 22.06.2013)

Domestic water supplies on St Helena continue to be at very low levels and SHG and Connect Saint Helena Ltd appeal to all residents across the Island to use water conservatively and to limit their consumption.







WATER SHORTAGE ON ST
HELENA UPDATE



 









Domestic water supplies on St Helena continue to be at very
low levels and SHG and Connect Saint Helena Ltd appeal to all residents across
the Island to use water conservatively and to limit their consumption.



 



The current water shortage is centred on the Red Hill
distribution area, which includes Half Tree Hollow, Cowpath, Ladder Hill,
Red Hill, Sapper Way, New Ground, Clay Gut, Pounceys, Kunjie Field, Scotland,
Plantation, Cleughs Plain, Rosemary Plain, Francis Plain, Crack Plain and
Guinea Grass.



 



Therefore the hosepipe and sprinkler ban continues in the
Red Hill distribution area and we remind residents in these areas that it is an
offence to use hosepipes or sprinklers or otherwise waste water intended for
domestic use until further notice.



 



It is vital that residents in the above areas show proper
restraint in the use of water and limit this by, for example:



 



Not flushing the toilet on every
occasion



Using washing up water on the
garden or vegetable patch



Using the washing machine sparingly
and only when full



Using the shower instead of taking
a bath



Not using a dishwasher



Turning the tap off while brushing
teeth



 



Efforts continue to try to source additional water in these
areas and we will update residents as plans develop. In addition, leaks will be
treated as a priority and any problems should be reported promptly to Connect
Saint Helena Ltd on telephone 2255 during working hours, or 2522 out of hours.



 



Please think about how you use water and how you can
use less.



Further updates will follow.
