The Hosepipe Snitches


Where water wastage reports came from during the national hosepipe ban 

In July.

A national hosepipe ban was introduced due to the hot weather and subsequent drought in Ireland.

It was recently lifted from the west and northwest of the country but it’s been extended until the end of September for 16 counties: Dublin, Louth, Meath, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Offaly, Westmeath, Carlow, Wicklow, Wexford, Waterford, Cork, Kerry, Limerick and Tipperary.

During the national ban, some people contacted Irish Water about others they believed flouted the ban.

    “somebody deliberately running a hose directly from their toilet cistern into a drain just to waste water on purpose”

    “somebody reported to be using their hosepipe to wash twenty carpets in their front garden”

    What the hell?

    The more you learn about teh human condition, the more you realise why socialism can’t work: the tragedy of the commons, some people are just selfish d|cks.

    To all of the regular posters here who were bleating on about being charged for water: this is why we need water charges.
