Has your bill increased? We've all spent a lot more time at home this year and we've been using water differently.
Did you know that May was the driest month on record? Our friends at the Met Office said we had a whopping 266 hours of sunshine! We definitely made the most of the great weather. We’ve been doing DIY projects, gardening and enjoying time outside - all these things use water. In fact, our water demand in May was the highest it’s been this year, and on some days, we’ve been pumping an extra 140 million litres of water across our network!
And it's not just the warm weather that's been affecting bills. We've all done our bit to stop the spread by using water to keep our homes and ourselves clean. Plus the whole family's been at home, just think about the showers we couldn't have at the gym, how many more cups of tea you've made or all the extra toilet flushes - it all adds up!
How much water am I using?
These numbers are based on average water use. Costs are worked out by adding the water and sewerage charges per litre used, they do not include standing charges.
