Heatwave in the UK

It’s great to see our region enjoying the summer sunshine and, despite having a prolonged spell of dry weather, our reservoirs are currently at normal levels. Of course, we’re always keeping a close eye on our operations to ensure our customers continue getting water to their taps.

However, we would like to stress that it isn’t a signal for people to start using their hoses to water lawns, wash cars and fill up pools etc. There might not be a hosepipe ban in place, but as always we’re encouraging our customers to find other ways to use water more efficiently.

In fact, some of the media coverage at the moment about taking shorter showers is the type of message we’re pushing all year round. Regardless of whether it’s bright sunshine or it’s pouring with rain, water is precious all the time, and we should all find ways to save it.

Thank you!
