Water from the National Sports Centre swimming pools is being made available this week to help preserve dwindling stocks in the Isle of Man's reservoirs.
A hosepipe ban came into force in the Island on 3 August following the recent prolonged spell of dry weather.
The Meteorological Office has also forecast only a moderate probability of normal rainfall over the next three months, meaning there is little chance of reservoirs being topped up in the near future.
Up to one and a half million litres of water will be available from the competition and leisure pools at the NSC until 3pm on Friday 10 August. The swimming facilities closed on 4 August to enable work to start on a major upgrade.
