Water UK response to National Drought Group
Responding to today's announcement from the National Drought Group Stuart Colville, Water UK Director of Policy, said:
"Ongoing warm weather in much of the country follows the driest winter and spring since the 1970s.
"Water companies have detailed plans in place to manage water resources for customers and the environment, and are doing everything they can, including working closely with government and regulators, to minimise the need for any restrictions and ensure rivers continue to flow.
"As we continue to see extremely high demand, we are urging everyone to carefully consider the amount they are using given the unprecedented conditions. The water industry is running a national water saving campaign called Water’s Worth Saving that provides the public with helpful hints and tips on how to do their bit with water use in the home and garden."
