Guernsey Water encourages customers to be mindful of their water usage habits during this hot and dry weather, and to think about reducing wastage wherever possible.

The latest water storage figures show that Guernsey’s reserves are still in a healthy state, but the utility are aware that prolonged dry weather spells can put pressure on reserves.

Andrew Redhead, director of water services said “at Guernsey Water we are always encouraging customers to be sensible with their water usage, especially in these summer months were there has been a lot less rainfall and the temperatures have been very high.”

“We recommend simple, cost-effective changes to water usage habits, which once combined, can make a real difference to the amount of water used by customers,” he said.

“Customers who have a water meter fitted to their supply generally reduce their water consumption by between 12 to 15%, so this is still the most effective way of saving water and reducing your bill,” Mr Redhead said.

Guernsey Water has a wealth of water saving tips and advice on its website.
