Water is essential to every aspect of our lives. We drink it, cook with it and use it to clean. It grows the food we need, helps generate the energy we use, and goes into the creation of everything we own. But our water supply faces big challenges. The population of the South East is growing fast, and climate change will bring droughts and more extreme weather. It’s a future of more people needing water and wastewater services, with less water to go around.
The vital nature of water, and the need to keep it flowing far into the future is what we mean by Water for Life. And it’s why we need to start acting now for the challenges ahead.
