What does the law say?

Under the Flood and Water Management Act 2010, water authorities can ban, albeit temporarily, the use of hosepipes and water (with or without the use of a hosepipe) for certain reasons.

A water authority can introduce a ban if it thinks it is experiencing, or may experience, a serious shortage of water for distribution across a certain area. However, the Flood and Water Management Act 2010 does not define what is meant by a ‘serious shortage’, which could leave water authorities open to legal challenges.
