Please note that water tanks and containers, such as IBC tanks, must be filled using only rain water. These are not to be filled by using a hosepipe.
This is also a polite reminder about being vigilant when filling water butts with a hosepipe. On two occasions within the last 3 weeks, a plot holder has forgotten to turn off the tap, resulting in their water butt overflowing and wasting water. Another plot holder was not aware that their water butt was overflowing whilst still on their plot.
The water supply at the allotment is on a metre and water wastage will have a serious impact on the water bill.
