50% of our supply is from surface water (reservoirs and rivers) and 50% of our supply is from groundwater stored in underground aquifers.
Rainfall for the Anglian Water region was average for March. Rainfall at the start of the month helped boost rivers and reservoir levels but the region saw little to no rainfall for the last 2 weeks. The 6 month average is 94% and the 12 month average is 87% of the LTA.
River flows range from below normal to normal across the region. Groundwater levels are below normal at almost all our indicator sites.
We continue to monitor the water resources situation very closely and 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 February 2019.
The Environment Agency also monitors the water resource situation and complies a monthly report, available from their website.
