Make your Pledge to Save Water

March 24, 2006 at 5:23 am

A new website has been set up by eight southern water companies in partnership with the Environment Agency to try and encourage the public to conserve water and beat the current drought the south is facing.

The website features a pledge system where people can choose various areas where they can save water in the house and garden and make an online promise that they will make these changes.

The most popular change at present is to water the garden with a watering can rather than a sprinkler. Sprinklers actually use over 1,000 litres per hour, that is as much as six people use normally in one day so if people stick to this pledge this will really make a difference. In fact, most of the south have had hose pipe bans enforced anyway so this promise should be kept.

Other pledges include turning off the tap whilst brushing teeth and washing vegetables; having showers instead of baths and having a water saving device to the toilet. If all the pledges that have been made so far are put into action then a total of 61,940,004 litres of water will be saved.

Help beat the drought and make your pledge today.
