There were four official complaints made to Irish Water about people breaking the hosepipe ban in Waterford this past July.
The company introduced the ban during the summer heatwave and has since extended it for Waterford and 15 other counties until the end of September.
Three of the submissions – released to journalist Ken Foxe of transparency campaigners Right to Know – concerned hosepipes, with one complainant noting a neighbour was watering her garden daily.
The final complaint related to fire hydrants being used to spray water.
In total there were 263 complaints lodged through the country, with one in Kilkenny claiming an offender had “purchased a 5000 litre swimming pool and had it filled up and emptied in one evening”.
The complaints were all made in the first half of July.
