  1. Made a plan around this more than two decades ago, 28 years, to be more accurate! Yes! That’s how long it’s been, since water was supplied in my area!! Water tanks are an all too common sight in all areas, along with boreholes and an steady stream (pardon the pun), of bowsers, delivering water to homes and businesses! Shows how slow and incompetent those in charge of the water supply situation are, and have been! I certainly won’t hold my breath on this one, and can only cringe at the thought of the extortionate charges for it, if ,and when, this happens!
