South East Water Urgent water supply update

By Vickie Ford (Clerk) Boughton Malherbe Parish Council

Monday, 18 July 2022


Boughton Malherbe Parish Council Contributor


Water is vital for health. So now, more than ever, we need to make sure there is always enough for everybody.With the continued hot weather and record-breaking temperatures, it is so important that we pull together as a community to make sure there will always be enough water for everybody, including our vulnerable customers.

Our treatment works are at maximum capacity, demand for water is exceptionally high, and we are still unable to replenish supplies in your local area quickly enough, to keep up with localised demand.

We are still asking you to Stop, Think & Act. This is to ensure that there is enough water to supply everyone in your area whilst demand is so high.

STOP: Using hosepipes & sprinklers. Take shorter showers.

THINK: Does your paddling pool need filling all the way? Let your lawn go golden. It will recover.

ACT: Do all we can to cut down on everything but essential water use.

We all need to pull together as a community and continue to protect our vital local water supplies.
