The UK's water supply is under pressure, meaning water is an even more precious resource. Help play your part by saving water at home with our handy tips and resources.
Water's Worth Saving is a campaign from Water UK and Waterwise.
Why is water worth saving?
While it may feel like it rains every day in the UK, we have a finite amount of water to go round. Climate change, population growth and the need to improve our resilience to droughts are all putting pressure on water supplies.
The climate emergency is causing an increase in the occurrence of prolonged periods without rain in the UK and 2020 was the warmest year on record in Europe. A recent survey showed that 42% of UK adults are now worried about parts of the UK running out of water in the next 25-years.
On top of this, last year we saw a dramatic change in the pattern of water use, as more people stayed and worked from home. A surge in ‘staycations’ this year means water usage is high again this summer.
