Hosepipe Ban

Hosepipe Ban

 
18 Jul 2018

You will have heard of the hosepipe ban being enforced from 5 August in North West England

This is formally known as a Temporary Use Ban (TUB)

This is the notice

https://www.unitedutilities.com/globalassets/documents/tubfinalweb.pdf

you can see that at the top of the second column (below the bullets) that there is a Statutory exemption for the watering of the playing strip for Health & Safety reasons, you may not water the whole ground, with the use of the term "strip" we would consider this as referring to cricket

This actually reads "NB Watering areas of grass, which are used for sport or recreation, is covered by a Statutory Exception for health and safety only in relation to the active strip/playing area, not the entire ground."
