Water Way To Go

This week's torrential downpours and relentless rain have caused panic and misery across the UK. Most worrying of all events occurred early this morning as the Ulley Dam in Sheffield began to crack, as the weight of the abnormally high rainfall bore down.

In some areas 3.3 inches of rain fell in just 24 hours. Last year 2.5 inches fell in the whole of June. This, however is no comfort to Barry Baluga, CEO of South Staffordshire Water.

"Despite the abundance of wet and mostly moist water, also known as liquid H20 or runny rain, we are still preparing for a drought in the coming months." He told The Spoof.

Last year saw gardens up and down the country turn a nasty brown, and flowers and trees set on fire, as the suns harmful rays beat down upon our great nation, without a drop of rain in sight.

Hosepipe bans and water meters were installed, and it looks as though steps will be made again.

"If everyone fills a bucket up at home, and pours it into a reservoir on the way to work, we'd have no worries at all." Barry added, sipping a pint of milk.
