Thread: Why people 'ratted out' their neighbours during the hosepipe ban. One resident in Cork said their neighbour was using water to wash their yacht. All these from a database obtained under #FOIA from #IrishWater
On Day One of the ban in Fingal, one person called to say their neighbour had been filling up a large pool and emptying it continuously over the past few days:
Also in Fingal, somebody reported to be using their hosepipe to wash twenty carpets in their front garden:
In South Dublin, a resident reported to be filling up their jacuzzi:
In Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown, somebody deliberately running a hose directly from their toilet cistern into a drain just to waste water on purpose:
In Co Wicklow, an apparent scam involving partially wetting driveways to try and get residents to get them fully cleaned. Also lots more reports of super-size inflatable pools getting filled:
In Tipperary, somebody filling a pool that they've now left unattended and is overflowing:
Another person filling a 5,000 litre swimming pool and another man washing his boat in Co Mayo:
And where did most of the water wastage reports come from?
