Water Leak – Fix a Leak Week – Metro Rod West Yorkshire

20th March 2019

Water Leak – Fix a Leak Week – Metro Rod West Yorkshire

You may have seen headlines in the news such as: “England to run out of water in 25 years due to climate change and population boom”, “England could run out of water by 2044, experts fear”, “England could run out of water within 25 years, warns Environment Agency boss”. Climate change is happening, and this means that the UK is going to have hot and drier summers. This means a shortage of water and higher drought risk. As well as climate change, the growth in population is expected to rise from 65million to 75million by 2050.


Climate change + growth in population = threat.

The impact of climate change, combined with population growth, means the country is facing an “existential threat”, - Sir James Bevan told the Waterwise Conference in London.

“No water, no life. No blue, no green. No ocean, no us.” – Sylvia Earle, Distinguished Marine Biologist.
