South East Water have announced today that the last 12 months have been the driest since 1976 and their reservoirs in Sussex are at extremely low levels. Southern Water have levels for their reservoir at Bewl on their website showing volumes since 2000. The level has been on a direct downwards path for 2011 and as of 17 November is at only 40% full.

By saving water using IBC containers or water butts over the winter you will have a store of water that you can use on your garden next year if Southern Water implement drought restrictions such as a hosepipe ban in 2012.
