Water resources latest

In this section we explain the current status of our water resources and how our reservoirs compare to the long term average.


The winter of 2016-17 was drier than average, with the South East only receiving 77% of normal rainfall. You can read more by downloading our Spring 2017 Water Resources update

The South East received 7% of the average rainfall for April up to the 25th of the month.

We measure groundwater levels at 16 sites. The levels rose at three sites, and fell at 13 sites in the last week.


We're continuing our work to reduce leakage across our region to an all-time low and to replace dozens of kilometres of water mains to help reduce the risk of bursts.

Nearly 450,000 water meters equipped with leak alarms have also been installed across the South East – which will help save up to five million litres of water each day.
