UK "drought" is artificial scarcity

Post by mitch on Tue Jul 17, 2018 9:52 am

Talk of hosepipe bans & drought in UK is artificial scarcity and green light for the criminally corrupt water boards to impose fines etc.
Egypt's main source of freshwater is the Nile River. The river supplies 56.8 billion m³ of freshwater every year, which represents 97% of all renewable water resources in Egypt.

Are you sure it's "artificial"? Our water supply is as natural as you can get, being a simple well and it's as low as I can remember. In the last two months we've only had 37mm of rain, the same period had 170mm last year and 191mm in 2016.

It is artificial PITSWID as it isn't in short supply or scarce, other countries are much hotter than ours and they have much less water.

Problems arise with storage capacity and this is artificially low for this very reason, they could increase storage capacity but they would rather pay shareholder dividends instead of increasing storage capacity which will benefit the population.

Ask yourself a simple question, why is it only domestic users which are hit? there are no limitations or restrictions on business users and as they are the largest users, if there was a genuine drought everyone would be hit and not just domestic users. I have my own supply and even with this hot weather, the springs have kept running and my levels have not dropped during the hotter months currently.

I was very much opposed to privatisation of any of the utilities, especially where the supply is effectively a monopoly so there can't be any form of competition.  However I don't think privatisation can be solely blamed for current situation.  There were hosepipe bans when it was all in public ownership.

Maybe it would be more accurate to say they haven't made improvements that they should have done.  Is public water supply better or worse than say 40 years ago?  I don't know first hand as I've not had a connection.  By comparison electricity supply has improved greatly over that time (not that I'm going to attribute that to privatisation).

Comparison with other countries is interesting as standard vary as do expectations. For example in the mid 70's I was in Brittany and their response to a dry summer was to cut off all domestic supplies other than standpipe in public areas.  The supply was also declared as unsafe to drink and expected to remain so for at least the next six months.

You're not making much sense. Like assassin says, business users are immune to water bans. Hosepipe bans and talk of drought are designed to inculcate notions of general scarcity of resources and services in the public mind when there's no need; to get us to do without more and more stuff as they take it away from us for themselves and for profit (austerity). There are vast reserves of water in this country and it wouldn't take much restructuring to feed the supply from the rivers into the reservoirs. Your exorbitant water bill lines the pockets of water board executives and their shareholders.
