On Friday 19th August at 8am a Hosepipe Ban came into force across the whole of Pembrokeshire. On the same day, the whole of southwest Wales was moved into drought status.
It is essential that residents ensure they do not use a hosepipe during the ban otherwise they may face prosecution. The ban is in place to try and preserve the water supply which is currently very low. This is evident from the extremely low water levels at Llysyfran and Rosebush reservoirs.
