Mauritians fellows, I hope that you recently washed your cars as well as watered your lawn or got your windows cleaned recently. As from tomorrow 10th February 2012, the water usage restriction will be applicable once again, as it was previously the case during the period of 5 January 2011 to 24 February 2011.
To remind you, not abiding to these rules has serious consequences. The previously applied Drought Period Regulations 2011 stated the following :
(a) In the case of a domestic consumer to a fine not exceeding 50,000 rupees and to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 2 years.
(b) In any other case to a fine not exceeding 200,000 rupees and to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 2 years.
So, till further announcement*, try to keep yourself away from the water hose and just call 202-9946 (between 6am and 8pm) and 170 (after 8pm) to denounce your troublesome neighbor to police for water wastage.
Save water… It doesn’t grow on trees
psst : * = some stupid decision of the authorities when they notice some hours of rainfall[Read post].
