The warnings come as Britain faces changing climate and a growing population.
(PRWEB UK) 21 May 2013
It has been reported by money.aol.co.uk that Environmental Agency Chairman, Lord Chris Smith made the demands at the Institute of Water’s annual conference. The warnings come as Britain faces changing climate and a growing population, both of which place extra pressure on our water supplies. He explains that it is important for water companies to prevent sewers overflowing during heavy rain periods, something that often leads to flooding and water damages in homes and businesses, as well as pollution to the environment.
Whilst Lord Smith acknowledged the improvements that have been made so far, he also states that “water companies need to make better use of their resources by sharing water with their networks and with neighbouring companies."
Renowned for their London emergency plumbers, Emergency Plumber operates throughout the country, treating a wide range of plumbing issues. The team take a strong interest in all updates and developments within the sector and so naturally the latest news was of great interest. A representative from the agency shares their thoughts on the subject.
“It is good to see that the big water companies are being urged to cut leaks. Although last year all water companies met their leakage targets, these still allow a quarter of water to be lost through leaks, which is concerning.
“However, there is action homeowners themselves can take to improve this. Regularly checking for leaks can minimise the water lost. If you should happen to find a leak, remember to turn off your water supply, protect the area around it with towels and call a fully trained and reliable plumber as soon as possible to resolve the issue.”
