Summer water save

DESPITE the recent wet weather, water companies are warning people not to become complacent about their consumption.

The problem is that after such a dry winter, reservoirs became very low and have only recently got back to healthy levels.

Doug Clarke, water efficiency manager at Severn Trent, said: “Use water wisely as part of your everyday life.

“If we are all careful with the amount of water we use then we won’t have to take as much from the environment.”

He added that customers of Severn Trent are ‘very water conscious’ and as a result have one of the lowest levels of consumption in the UK.

Doug said: “But there is more we can all do to.”
