There is no significant rainfall forecast and with summer approaching it is critical that we use water for essential purposes only.
With no substantial rainfall experienced over the last week, the Island’s water stocks remain low. There is just 36 days of storage volume remaining.
St Helena’s water consumption levels on 14 and 15 August reduced to less than 1000 cubic metres. This is the consumption rate that is required to sustain a safe level of stored water on the Island. The effort that has been made by all is noticeable.
Remember, we are currently under an Island-wide hosepipe ban which Connect Saint Helena (CSH) enforced on Monday, 24 June 2019.If you see anyone using water irresponsibly or notice a burst pipe or leak, then please inform CSH immediately.
Every drop counts, every action counts – everyone must save every drop of water possible.
