    Default PHEW! WATER SCORCHER Water shortage 2018 could there be a drought in the UK and why



    For the UK overall, an average of 35.4mm has been recorded - sparking fears of a drought as reservoirs dry up in the heat.

    The Met Office today confirmed Thursday was the hottest day of the year, with 32.6C recorded in Porthmadog in Wales.

    Northern Ireland is the first area to bring in a hosepipe ban, it is the first time it has done so in six years.

    NI Water chief executive Sara Venning said: "We have maximised our water production and need customers' help to reduce demand.

    "We are asking customers to take heed of the hosepipe ban and stop non-essential water use - using hoses and sprinklers is causing demand to exceed the capacity to supply."

    Other drastic measures could follow suit, with Anglian Water previously distributing 25,000 waterproof egg timers to encourage people to have a shower instead of running a bath in 2012.

    The average person in the UK uses a huge amount of water, around 150 litres of water a day compared to just 127 litres per person in Germany.

    Charge you for something then don't supply it, typical utility company. Make lots of cash even when they fail to supply.
