Thames Water, which serves 15 million people in many regions in the south of the country, including London, announced that they will implement a “hose ban” (the official restriction on the use of hoses during water shortages by a certain water company) in the coming weeks, the BBC reported.
It was noted that the company’s decision to restrict the hot weather warnings made by the British Meteorological Agency (Met Office) was taken into account.
Due to “legal procedures”, the date from which the restriction will be implemented was not conveyed.
On the other hand, it is expected that excessive use of water will be banned in works such as gardening and filling swimming pools, within the scope of the restrictions that can last until October.
A “third degree temperature” warning was issued regarding the heat wave covering the whole country in England.
According to Met Office statistics, this year’s July was “the driest July for England since 1935” and the “driest July” on record for East Anglia, southeast and southern England.
