Water is not as plentiful as many think it is, and the Anglian Water region is the driest in the UK, receiving a third less rainfall than the national average. The east of England also has one of the fastest rates of housing growth in the country, so placing ever greater demands on our water resources.
Anglian Water recognises the value of water efficiency in running a sustainable business and has one of the lowest levels of leakage of UK water companies. We supply 1.2 billion litres of water a day, the same as in 1989, even though our population has increased by 20 per cent.
As demand for water in our region increases it is vital that businesses and consumers use water wisely. At the same time, to minimise their impact on the environment, organisations must strive to reduce their use of raw materials and their discharge of by-products.
To better understand your water use we suggest you look at your bills and work out how much you use. Then think about simple measures you can put in place to save water and cut costs. We can also provide a range of services to help, please contact us for more information.
