Reservoirs are designed to store the rain that falls during the year, so that we can have a continuous supply of water within our homes, businesses, schools and hospitals. However, with population growth and changing weather patterns due to climate change we are now starting to experience prolonged spells of low rainfalls like the one we saw in the spring of 2020 which was the driest since 1929.
To conserve our water supply and reservoir levels we must become more resilient against the impact of climate change by becoming more water efficient in our everyday use of water. Water efficiency is so important which is the reason we want to ensure there's enough water for everyone now and in the future.
