Hosepipes banned as island dries out in the sun

A hosepipe ban has been imposed for parts of St Helena because water supplies have dwindled in a long spell of dry weather.

The ban affects people whose water comes from the Red Hill treatment works, and those in Sandy Bay who are supplied from Wranghams and Perkins Gut. People who receive an irrigation supply from Harpers are also barred from using hosepipes or sprinklers.

In a statement, the Water Division asked people to use water only for basic domestic needs. It thanked users for their patience.
