I think Victorians should learn how to use the water, when I was living over there last year until beginning of this year, I noticed the vics actually ignore the restrictions, some say it's ok to wash the car, water the garden with the hose, so long as you don't get caught. This is not the attitude to have when there is shortage.
Also when the pipes burst in Melb and Ringwood, the water in Ringwood had not been turned off until 5hrs after it had been running down the road, and next thing the report for water use in this area was said to be at a high, the very same thing happen in the city, then the report again was at a high for that area, so exactly who oays for this, you guys do, in your increase in rates etc. I think the higher your water bill the better, you may just start to take notice of the usuage, user pays, sounds the way to go. I do understand it's not all Vic's that do this, but I know and seen it happen, I even question dripping taps, I got told don't worry about it, it's only a drip. For the ones that don't know those drips add up on your water bill. Think about it! Reply
