United Utilities has announced a Temporary Use Ban in the North West of England. Please visit unitedutilities.com for full details.
The Temporary Use Ban is scheduled to come into force on 5 August 2018. Unless there is a period of sustained rainfall before then, these restrictions will help to safeguard essential water supplies for longer.
As a business, you may be allowed to use a hosepipe if this is directly related to the use of water for your commercial purposes. There are restrictions on you using a hosepipe if not for those essential needs. The Temporary Use Ban will be in place until water levels are acceptable. For full details of these restrictions, please view United Utilities FAQs for business customers.
