Manx Utilities have imposed a hosepipe ban on the Isle of Man from Friday 29th of July 2022. This is ongoing and will continue “until further notice”.
The ban prohibits the use of garden hosepipes, sprinklers and pressure washers. They state that a maximum fine of £2000 can be imposed for those breaking the rules.
Businesses on the island may continue to use such devices if they are “directly linked to the use of water for your commercial purposes. Some examples of this would be commercial car washes, gardeners, window cleaners etc.”
Update: The hosepipe ban on the Isle of Man officially ends on Wednesday 7th of September 2022.
