Thames Water hosepipe ban ends tonight
June 13, 2012
Thames Water will lift its hosepipe ban at midnight tonight after record rainfall eased the pressure of the water shortage across the region.
The Reading-based utility company which serves 8.8 million people in London and the Thames Valley thanked customers for complying with the the restriction which has helped save more than 100 million litres a day during the hot spell in May.
But with the possibility of a third dry winter in a row this year the firm has urged customers to continue to use water wisely and to encourage the use of a range of free water-saving devices available via its website.
Hosepipe bans were imposed on April 5 by Thames Water and six other firms following the driest two-year period on record.
