Be water wise in the heatwave

Published Thursday, 5 July 2018

Following calls from residents in Farnham experiencing an intermittent water supply, the council has been liaising with South East Water to identify the cause of the issue and a resolution for this.

South East Water have told us that while reservoirs and underground water sources are in a good position, it is possible that some customers may experience low water pressure during this period of high demand. This is because when it’s hot, customers draw a lot more water from the network of pipes, especially during the peak hours of 7am to 9am and 5pm to 7pm. This can make it harder to pump water fast enough through the water mains, resulting in low pressure for some customers.

South East Water have confirmed that they are working hard to reroute water around their network to keep taps flowing and are encouraging all customers to be water wise and help save water where possible.
