Why Is The UK In A Drought?

While we may have seen plenty of rain recently, summer 2022 was one of the driest on record for the UK. This led to an official drought announcement. However, due to the hot weather there was a 40% increase in water usage in some areas. This dramatic increase in water use, combined with a lack of rain, means that the drought is ongoing.

Will The UK See Water Cuts?

As of now, water cuts are not happening in the UK - but that doesn’t mean we can rule it out entirely. The National Drought Group has spoken out to warn that a worse drought is possible in 2023. While government preparations could reduce the impact this has on individuals, water cuts could be possible in order to save resources and reduce environmental harm.

What Would Water Cuts Mean For You?

For individuals, water cuts are likely to mean hosepipe bans and other restrictions on everyday water usage. Water supply may not be as constant as we are used to, depending on the severity of the cuts. Reduced availability could mean that cutting down on baths and showers is essential.

Making The Most Of Less Water

Water cuts are not guaranteed - and they don’t need to negatively impact your life. Simple steps to save water could make a huge difference, and you can start now. Checking your home for leaks could reduce the amount of water you use and bring down your energy bills in the process. A small change like taking a shower instead of a bath, and reusing that water for plants, can conserve huge amounts of water. Even changing to a water-saving shower head could help you to get a longer shower from less water.

Concerns over the UK’s water supply continue to grow. But with the right strategies in place, the impact of potential water cuts can be mitigated. Advanced Showers can help you to find long-term solutions for reducing water usage - get in touch to find out more.
