WPCC is a heavy water user, with the showers and toilets in constant use. With Level 6B water restrictions coming in to effect on the 1st of February, we need to reduce our water usage materially, not just because of the financial burden this would place us under with punitive charges, but more importantly because we need to reduce our consumption of potable water markedly. WPCC needs to contribute to the overall campaign to save water.
Although we have made significant progress on a water usage solution that will materially reduce our potable usage, we still need to save water in the short term until this solution is installed. We have therefore taken the decision to close our showering facilities with immediate effect. We understand that this is an inconvenience – especially to hockey and squash players – but Day Zero is even more of an inconvenience. We therefore need to play our part in avoiding that situation. We hope that this remedy will play a small part in assisting the overall campaign to save water.
We thank you for your understanding in this matter.
