Be water smart - keep your river flowing

Everyone can make a difference to the health of our rivers by using water wisley and being water smart. We all know that every time we turn on a tap, the water comes from the environment. Every drop we use is a drop that otherwise would be keeping the river flowing.

At the start of 2019, after a dry summer and autumn, river levels remain below average and groundwater is lower than usual for the time of year, so now more than ever we all need to be water smart.
