Be water smart - keep your river flowing

Everyone can make a difference to the health of our rivers by using water wisely 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.

Thames Water and Southern Water offer free water saving gadgets, which you can order from their websites. Also take a look at our leaky loos page - and check yours isn't one of the thousands which waste more than 400 litres every day, that's five full baths!
