CENTRAL WATER DISTRIBUTION
AUTHORITY.
WATER SHORTAGE.
The Public is hereby notified that the
rainfall in the Kingstown Area during
March of this year (2.65 ins.) was about
32 per cent less than the Average Rain-
fall for this month over the last 56 years
(3.89 ins.) and that the average over the
months of Jauuary, February and March
of this year was 30 per cent less than
the average for these months over the
last 56 years. On the other hand the
average rainfall during January, Febru-
ary and March of 1952, when there was
apparently no shortage of water, was
about the same as the average for the
same period of this year.
It is therefore apparent that during
this dry spell there has been a tendency
to consume more water than usual from
the mains for domestic, garden, laundry
and commercial purposes.
Consumers are therefore asked to con-
serve the mains water supply as much
:is possible and to ascertain that all leaks
are repaired; and that taps are not left
running or dripping. At no time
should personal or clothes washing be
done at public standpipes as this is con-
trary to law.
G. B. W. MORISON,
Chairman,
Central Water Distribution
Authority.


ENTERTAINMENT TAX NOTICE.

To all whom it may concern Notice is
hereby given that applications for re-
mission by the Governor in Council of

ONIAL TREASURER NOT LATER THAN
ONE FORTNIGHT PRIOR TO THE DATE
