    Re: Hosepipe ban announced for 20 million as drought bites

    Desalination plants are expensive to run in terms of power. I did read it would around 1MW to desalinate enough water for the average 4 person UK house (approx 100) plus the cost of building the plant, maintaining it, etc

    Plans to build a new reservoir in oxfordshire turned due to pressure from local residents

    Plans to build water network from north to south in the 70's were rejected

    of course there is a plenty being wasted through leaks as well

    BBC News - Drought summit: Why not pipe the water from north to south?

    Unless he's on about the far more comprehensive Yr 2000 tv adaptation or even it's follow up "Children of" incarnation.

    If he's on about the books
