The Forum believes:
1. There is no proven evidence that legionella bacteria can be
contracted through hosepipes connected to mains water supplies. No
horticultural or public health body advocate such a ban.
2. Distributing harvested rainwater via a hose poses no risk whatsoever as bio-aerosols cannot be created.
3. The ban discriminates against persons with medical or disability issues.
Lifting the current unjustified ban is a pre-requisite of the
Forum partnering with BCC to reduce mains water use by increasing
rainwater storage and other eco-friendly practices such as
Bristol Allotments Forum enables plot holders to meet and discuss issues directly with BCC officers.
