A family home at Richmond Park
A view of Anika and Neil’s block in the summer months. All houses in Richmond Park get water through a piping system, which connects to a nearby dam. In recent years, significant declines in rainfall have caused droughts island-wide. The Richmond Park dam has been drying up, and as a result, the National Water Commission (NWC) has had to put harsher restrictions in place.
But there is more to this story. In Richmond Park, some streets get lock offs, while others don’t. For some reason, my mothers’ new house, which is located just a few streets away, gets no water cutoff at all – just lower water pressure. It is said that the National Water Commission decides which areas of Richmond park should be subjected to restrictions. This block just happens to be one of the unlucky ones.
