Hosepipe Bans Ended

The remaining four water companies with water restrictions in place have today ended those restrictions.

South East Water, Sutton and East Surrey Water, Veolia Water Central and Veolia Water Southeast ended their hosepipe bans after months of record breaking rainfall. Anglian Water, Southern Water and Thames Water had lifted their bans in June.

A statement by all four companies said: “The companies would all like to thank their customers for complying with the restrictions and supporting their plea to use water wisely. This has kept demand for water well below levels normally experienced at this time of year. Significant – or indeed any – recharge of underground resources at this time of year is most unusual but it follows the abnormally heavy rainfall experienced since spring which has finally brought to an end the severe drought after two dry winters.”

It will be interesting to see how quickly Severn Trent moves towards the imposition of a hosepipe ban in the Redditch (East Worcestershire) area during this summer (2019). Thousands of litres of water were lost recently due to a main fracturing close to the roundabout at A448/Morrisons Supermarket. The event occurred only a few months after roadworks were undertaken in exactly the same location; these works related to a modification of access to the A448 westbound and were carried out by/on behalf of Worcestershire County Council’s Highways Department. Coincidence, no doubt … (*cough*)

Well, I suppose that’s that then.

Until next time, of course.
