Save a little water

With hotter summers and less rainfall, the water in our rivers, aquifers and reservoirs gets topped up less often. And a growing population in our region means we have more people and less water to go round.


Did you know the South East of England is officially water stressed?

While we are working hard to increase our storage capacity and reduce leakage, we should all look to use less water where we can.
Thankfully, when we work together, small changes make a lot of difference.
