Be water smart

Our population is increasing by 100,000 a year.

We don't get enough rain to fill our reservoirs and the average person uses more water than they think - around 143 litres a day, which is the same as 95 full kettles.

To protect our limited water supply for the future, we're investing £1 million every day to prevent leaks. We're also rolling out free smart meters to help you manage how much water you use. And by making a few small changes, you can make a big difference too.

Together, we can make sure we have enough water in out region, now and in the future.
