I knew it would happen but did expect it now - linky (https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/may/11/water-companies-losing-vast-amounts-through-leakage-raising-drought-fears)


Fears of a drought are rising after an exceptionally dry spell and water companies are asking customers to save water, but the vast amount of water that leaks from company pipes every day has not fallen for at least four years

:mad


Major companies across the south and east, including Thames, Anglian and Southern have seen no significant reduction and one company, Essex and Suffolk Water has seen leaks rise by 15%, according to the Ofwat figures.

Oh well least the food crops I'm growing are herbs that are well established.

You know there's only one way to fix this.

Vote Labour and nationalise the Utilities so that they're not run as profit-leeching businesses any longer.

When the Welsh declare independence they are going to start selling water to the English. My neighbour reckons he will get enough to buy his sheep suspenders.

So does he currently hire his sheep suspenders?
