I Saw This On The BBC And Thought You Should See It

England’s future water supplies at “serious risk”.

Some parts of England will run out of water within the next 20 years unless “urgent action” is taken. That’s the view of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) in a report on the state of water supplies. It’s calling on the government to establish a league table for water companies to pressure them into dealing with leaks. It also wants efficiency labels on domestic products like washing machines and dishwashers to be made compulsory.

It’s led to some less than impressed locals making comments, especially from our oft-flooded out Burscough friends “Strange this report on the shortage of water, while in Burscough we have a oversupply, so much that it frequently comes back up the highway drains and due to clay gardens it takes ages to penetrate the soil or evaporate. Don’t know why developers’ don’t build fresh water swimming pools as a sales feature into developments.

And “Next time I am up to my knees in floodwater, I must remind myself just how fortunate I am to be preserved from the “Jaws Of Death”.
