28 July 2022 - Update on continued dry weather

28th July 2022

While we have no immediate plans to implement water restrictions, the long period of unprecedented hot and dry weather we are experiencing, along with extremely high levels of demand, means we are constantly reviewing our position.

Overall our reservoir levels are lower than usual for this time of year and river levels are below normal across the region.

We always ask customers to think about their water usage and we are now urging customers to avoid non-essential water use such as filling paddling pools and using a hosepipe in the garden and for washing cars.
