  12. 'Be water smart' call after dry winter and spring

    Andrew Segal

    BBC South West

    Resident and holidaymakers in the South West are being asked to be "water smart" by regional utility South West Water (SWW).

    SWW said its total reservoir storage was currently about 73%, compared to 75% at the same time last year, "reflecting the relatively dry winter and spring".

    Head of Water Resources Rob Scarrott said: “Even though it often seems to rain a lot, the South West has actually had the second lowest amount of rainfall in the UK over the last six months.

    “We have no immediate concerns, but we expect demand for water to increase as we head into the peak summer season."

    The company provides water and sewerage services to Devon and Cornwall, plus small parts of Dorset and Somerset.
