The South East of England is one of the driest regions of the country and increasing housing growth will make further demands on the amount of water available.
During hot summer periods, such as the one we are experiencing at the moment, water usage traditionally increases. During this time we are kindly asking our customers across our supply area to assist us by reducing their water usage wherever possible while staying hydrated.
Overall, the stores of untreated water in rivers and aquifers remain healthy and are at the levels expected for the time of the year. There are currently no plans to introduce temporary water use restrictions this summer.
Wise with water
On average we each use 160 litres of water per person every day. It’s important we use water wisely so there are sufficient supplies of this precious resource for everyone now and in the future.
It’s very easy for us all to make a few simple changes in our daily lives which together will ensure we can have a secure supply of top quality drinking water.
