The water authorities here seem to spend more time planning how to get the consumer to use less water, than in working out how to produce a better supply for a growing population.

What do they propose to do when the water eventually runs out? Will all the hotels and restaurants have to close?

They will more than likely give the big hotels precedence over households....again.

At the beginning of this wet season the BOM said the wet would be late this year.  Well here we are and we've still not had our wet... very disturbing when previous wet seasons with a decent rainfall have always been met with water shortages.... how is this dry season going to pan out?  NOT GOOD I suspect!!
