Use of water on grounds
YCB have worked with the Grounds Management Association (GMA) to publish new guidance on:
1. Watering Effectively and Efficiently
2. Watering under drought restrictions
3. Working safely in hot and sunny conditions
This includes guidance on what to do if you are under a Temporary Use Ban (hosepipe ban) or other drought restriction. Clubs could be at risk of prosecution and fines if they are not watering in accordance with the law under Temporary Use Bans. All clubs should read the guidance and act on it. Please ensure that your grounds manager has access to the link and the resources.
The guidance is on the GMA Toolkit for Cricket; a free knowledge resource for cricket grounds managers.
