Would love to know the reason behind this - I was too young to remember why, but I do recall them both telling us not to go telling everyone because they weren't supposed to be there.

    We moved after that to a rural property where the only water was tank water and that's what we grew up with - I still have short showers to this day as I'm sure I'll still get Dad hammering on the bathroom door telling me I've been too long - even from beyond the grave.

    This happened in NSW as well in the '80's. One excuse was tanks were an eyesore and breeders of mosquitoes etc.

    Then the great turnaround happened and the state government started subsidising the purchase and installation of water tanks. Go figure.

    I grew up with tank water, am now connected to town water on my rural block and I don't waste water. And that is the main crux, people use too much water. Bugger building more dams and destroying more river systems. Utilise what we already have more wisely.
