Drought Situation – June Update …

A quick update to this post: We’ve now had a total of 116mm rain this June.

A glimmer of hope on the hosepipe ban horizon: One of the three aquifers that our local water company uses has risen from “Exceptionally Low” status to  “Notably Low”. This is an indication that some of the rain is getting through to the underground reservoirs.

The Environment Agency are due to publish a new weekly water situation report  in the next day or so. Watch this space.
