Water companies ramp up water supply to meet heatwave demand

 Water companies are pumping extra water into their network to cope with a record surge in demand during the ongoing heatwave.

To help prevent any water restrictions, companies are asking everyone to makes a few simple changes to your everyday routines:

  • Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth.
  • Taking a four minute shower.
  • Reusing paddling pool to water the garden rather than pouring it away.
  • Water your garden at night, when it has most benefit, with a watering can.
  • Let your lawn go brown – it will recover.
  • Wash your car after the heatwave.
