This website was conceived in 2005 when it became more and more apparent that the UK (particularly the South of England) was facing a future where water supplies couldn’t be guaranteed. We initially set up the site to encourage discussion about this issue.

As time has gone on we’ve seen lots of people come to the site looking for information more than wishing to discuss things directly. Over time we’ve developed the site much more and hopefully provided many more resources and points of reference for people to find out about the hosepipe ban, water shortage and droughts in general.

So this is very much a work in progress and we thank visitors old and new for their continued support.
