What the Water-Saving Community Fund is all about...

We all cook with it, clean with it and most importantly drink it – we use it to flush the loo, have a bath and wash our clothes – tap water is a vital part of our everyday lives. Every year the population grows and demand for tap water increases. Many think it rains all the time and don’t realise that tap water is a precious and limited resource.

We’re passionate about conserving supplies for people and the environment today, and future generations. We can’t do it alone, we need everyone to play their part to help save tap water and avoid waste. We’re always looking at new and innovative ways to get our customers and communities involved in water conservation, which is why we’ve set up the Water-Saving Community Fund.


Have you got an idea to help save tap water in your local community?

We’re looking for projects - big and small - whether it’s rainwater flushing public loos, drought tolerant gardens, water butts in community allotments, educational displays in schools, or harnessing new technology to change behaviour towards water use.
