Waterwise has published the UK Water Efficiency Strategy to 2030.
The strategy was launched online on Wednesday 21 September),following a meeting last week at the London Wetlands Centre where more than 50 organisations joined Waterwise to support the strategy’s vision.
This summer has seen rivers drying up and reservoir levels dropping – if there was ever a time for the UK to focus on water efficiency it’s now.
The need to ensure that there is enough water for people, the economy and the environment now and in the future – is paramount and Waterwise sets out its solution, which has been created collectively. The strategy, if adopted, could save at least 1,500 million litres of water every day by 2030 – the equivalent of building 10 new reservoirs across the UK.
There are 10 clear strategic objectives through to 2030, the strategy outlines the reasons for these, what needs to change, who needs to be involved and how it will track progress.
