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 and October and November 2017 were much drier than average in the South East. This has resulted in regional water sources being at lower levels than normal.

You can read more about our work to secure water supplies and make the best use of available resources below and on other related pages. This includes our dedicated Bewl Water reservoir page.

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.
