Please understand what you will read below is an effort to quickly let you know what we ALL face.  
We have covered the TRUTH about water for many years and have countless videos and articles on our sites PrimaryWater.org  and StopTheCrime.net
We are observing systemic water shortages/OUTAGES that are easily avoidable if we were allowed to access Primary Water – but sadly, most folks will NEVER be allowed to access the new pure unadulterated water from down below the mantel. 
Our CONtrollers are seizing at a rapid pace, NOW, all water resources and creating water markets.  
We will be forced into geographical locations were water will be REUSE.
REUSE is Waste Water from Sewage Treatment Plants.
Toilet to Tap – but worse
Sewage water contains FOREVER chemicals that will cause disease illnesses and death – FOREVER.
We Can NOT survive without water – and we will NOT survive on REUSE.   
This is another form of GENOCIDE,  Property Theft and Forcing Folks OFF the LANDS into designated KILL ZONES of intense unsurvivable frequencies and microwaving.  
Also, by not allowing folks to water outside landscaping we will suffer from reduce doxygen availability. 
Plants provide OXYGEN.
People are being programmed into the understanding that water is a finite resource, influenced by rain, snow and weather events including heat along with lengthy droughts.  WATER is NOT INFLUENCED BY WHAT WE ARE TOLD.
Learn the truth about OUR WATERKeep in mind we were told in May of 2023 Paraguay would run OUT of WATER.

A hosepipe and sprinkler ban has been imposed on people in Kent and Sussex.South East Water said it had no choice after demand for drinking water had reached “record levels” in June, similar to last year’s drought.
Up to 4,000 customers are without water or have been experiencing low pressure since Monday due to supply issues.
The water company had urged people to only use water for essential purposes, but has now issued an immediate ban on hosepipes and sprinklers.The measures mean that using the equipment to water gardens, clean cars and fill swimming pools will not be allowed.
It is understood that the Temporary Usage Ban can only be enforced after ten days of consultation, meaning after 26 June rule-breakers could be hit with a £1,000 fine.Areas including Wadhurst, Mayfield, Biddenden and Staplehurst have been affected by water outages.
Bottle stations have been set up across the two counties, and the supply issues are expected to continue until Sunday.
Douglas Whitfield, South East Water’s director of operations, told BBC Radio Kent the hot weather had caused demand to outstrip supply.
“We are pumping as much water as we can into the system, but water is being used before it gets to those customers who are currently on the end of our system,” he said.

Bottled water stations had been opened in Mayfield, Rotherfield, Wadhurst and AshfordSouth East Water said its facilities are working at full output, with every water treatment work and water source available producing treated water to keep up with demand.Despite this, the company said it was unable to return drinking water storage tanks to “satisfactory levels”.If your water is supplied by South East Water and you live in Kent or Sussex, you cannot use a hosepipe to:Water your gardenWater plantsWash your car, patio or boatFill up your swimming or paddling poolFill or maintain a domestic pond
There are exemptions, which can be found on South East Water’s website.
The firm said the demand for water had broken all previous records, including during the Covid lockdown heatwave periods.
It said it had produced an additional 120 million litres of water a day – equivalent to supplying four towns the size of Maidstone or Eastbourne.
The company serves 2.3 million people across Hampshire, Berkshire, Surrey, Sussex and Kent.Customers took to Twitter to express their anger over the hosepipe ban, with some blaming the high usage on leaks.
One said: “That will be the MANY water MAIN pipes that have burst recently!! My local area said demand was at its highest when NONE of us even HAD tap water!! Cause it was just falling out of the huge leaks!! Hardly CUSTOMER use is it?”Mr Whitefield told BBC Radio Kent that while leakage was an issue that South East Water was trying to address, the supply issues were not driven by leakage.South East Water
A burst pipe in Tunbridge Wells was repaired on ThursdayWealden District Council councillor Michael Lunn said he had spoken to 20 farmers affected by the drop in supply, including one with 40 cattle and heifers about to give birth, who were “hysterical”.
“It’s really serious,” he said, adding: “As far as I’m concerned, they [South East Water] are just so, so slow in responding to this crisis.”We were aware this was going to happen. We are not shocked or surprised, we are disappointed and we are really angry.”
The supply issues had forced several schools to close, and Rotherfield Primary School in Crowborough remains shut.Bottled water stations have been opened at Mayfield Memorial Hall, Rotherfield Village Hall, Sparrows Green Recreation Ground in Wadhurst and Headcorn Aerodrome in Ashford.
The shortages have provoked criticism from customers and local MPs directed towards the water company.The situation was described as “completely unacceptable” by Greg Clark, the Conservative MP for Tunbridge Wells.South East WaterThe water level of Arlington reservoir, near Hailsham in East Sussex, was low in summer 2022Met Office spokesman Stephen Dixon said the remainder of this week will be hotter than average for the time of year across the UK.In East Sussex, temperatures were tipped to reach 29C on Friday, while parts of Kent could reach a maximum of 27C on Saturday.In the next two weeks, however, heavy rain may affect parts of the South East, according to the Met Office.
South East Water experienced supply issues in December 2022 after pipes burst due to snow and ice thawing rapidly overnight, leaving thousands of households across Kent and Sussex without water before Christmas.
A government minister told the provider earlier this year that it “must act urgently” to significantly improve its performance.
