Waterwise – Reducing Water Wastage In The UK – The Facts

Waterwise – Reducing Water Wastage In The UK – The Facts.

 

This is a depressing statistic –

“The UK has less available water per person than most other European countries. London is drier than Istanbul, and the South East of England has less water available per person than the Sudan and Syria.”

Yet we allow the UK population to increase – up 1/2 a million in a year – as if the world were infinite and resources were limitless. We build on farmland. We build houses where the pressure on resources is greatest.

How many earths would you need?
