    February 2018 update

    Our water resources position is good and we do not anticipate the need for customer restrictions, ie, hosepipe bans.

    Our region received average rainfall over the last six months and above average rainfall during December and January. 

    Current total reservoir storage stands at 98% of total capacity. Pumped storage (where we pump water from rivers to top up storage in the surface reservoirs) is not currently running.

    River flows are monitored on a daily basis to ensure stream supports are switched on as the appropriate flow triggers are reached. River flows recovered to average levels over the winter period and almost all stream supports are no longer required

    Stream supports that are in operation in the following location: Watergates (Tadnoll Brook, Dorset

    Groundwater levels in the Southern and Western regions are average. However, in the northern Wessex Water region groundwater levels remain below average due to the lower than normal rainfall over the last 12 months.  


    leaks fixed on our network during 2016/17 plus a further 4,000 leaks fixed for free on customer's private supply pipes.

    We are committed to helping customers to reduce their water use. We are:

    Using water wisely can reduce customers' utility bills and help their local environment.
