RE: "Council to bring in a ban on hoses", February 13.
I have just read the news that Bathurst Regional Council will be implementing tougher water restrictions - a real kick in the guts for the Bathurst residents who have taken on board the "greening Bathurst" incentive that council promoted.
I, for one, have spent more than $5000 on beautifying my front yard, over half of which is owned by council.
I have already had to dig out five three-year-old silver birch trees and one prostrate Japanese maple that died from lack of water.
Surely Bathurst Regional Council can stretch implementing these harsh restrictions out until mid-March when the growing season has ended.
I am so very disheartened by this hopeless situation we are all in.
Bathurst Regional Council must look at other areas around the Bathurst region to construct a second water supply dam.
