The water industry is the UK’s fourth most energy intensive sector.
We are all aware of the awful impacts of fuel poverty but here in the UK, in the region of 1.5 million homes live in water poverty, while a further 3 million are on the verge of it. Against that backdrop, it becomes even more necessary that we look at water saving measures.
What are we calling for?
The Welsh Government, Dwr Cymru / Welsh Water and other stakeholders should develop national per capita water consumption targets and work together to develop a water saving culture in Wales that also helps prevent low income households of falling into water poverty.
We can try to reduce the amount of water we use and waste, thereby lessening our carbon footprint and saving money in our homes and protecting water resources.
