Reservoir levels

Rutland Reservoir

The persistent hot and dry weather seen in June continued into much of July. The majority of rainfall fell at the end of the month, when our region experienced some heavy thunderstorms. The monthly regional rainfall for July was 57% of the Long Term Average (LTA). The 6 month average is 95% and the 12 month average is 99% of the LTA.
River flows across the region are mostly below normal for the time of year. Groundwater levels are mostly normal across the region.

Overall reservoir storage is at 87% and all are operating within expected ranges, however we ask our customers to remain 'Waterwise' whatever the weather.

The graphs below show monthly rainfall for the region compared to average, and the volumes held in our main storage reservoirs up to the end of July.

The Environment Agency also monitors the water resource situation and compiles a monthly report, available from their website.
