Prepare now for next year’s drought

Had enough rain recently?There’s water everywhere now, but hark back: July was the driest ever for SE England, running into August to produce the joint hottest summer for the UK as a whole. Remember the wildfires, and a red Met Office warning of risk to life as well as property? Our ponds, waterways and gardens all suffered.

Do we take our clean water supply for granted? We assume it’s always there, but water is a finite resource that must be cared for, conserved and managed. Are we making best use of it? And how well are we prepared for the next drought?

Join us for a Re-Betchworth Zoom meeting focused on our local water supply

Wednesday 30 November 7.00 – 8.00pm No charge – Re-Betchworth will be delighted to welcome Buckland residents

You’ll be hearing from Rob Baldry from SES (Sutton and East Surrey Water) who will help us develop a better understanding of our local water resources and how we might play a more active role in reducing consumption and reusing our water in our homes and gardens.

After his illustrated talk, Rob and his colleague Tom Sommerfelt will answer questions so we can learn about the practical things we can all do to make better use of our precious water resources. Our summers are going to get drier, so don’t miss this.

Speaker Note: Rob Baldry is an experienced Chartered Engineer and Chartered Scientist (Institute of Water). As Water Quality Science Manager at SES, he leads the team that provides us with clean, wholesome drinking water.

P.S. This zoom meeting is just one element of a wider RE-B project on Making Better Use of Our Water / Preparing for the Next Dry Summer. To find out more please visit our webpage.
