Parts of England Officially In Drought.

Driest Spring for 100 years

Parts of England are officially in a drought following the dry spring, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has said.
Areas of East Anglia are in drought, with parts of the south-west and south-east of England, the Midlands and Wales in a "near-drought" state.
In the drought-affected areas, Anglian Water and Cambridge Water say there is no threat to public water supplies.
But Severn Trent Water says there may be restrictions if rainfall stays low.
Both the south-east and central-southern regions of England have had their driest spring on record.
Across England and Wales as a whole it has been the driest spring since 1990.

Does that mean I won't be able to change the water in my swimming pool?
Should I also finanly go and turn the bath tap off after twenty years of running? Or can I leave it on as long as I don't use a hose pipe for 5 minutes when I wash the car.

I do old chap but they still have to get the water from somewhere.
I suppose I could get a few tankers of seawater delivered.
