Engineers' response to drought
Commenting on the announcement of drought status in some areas of England Institution of Civil Engineers director general Tom Foulkes said:
"The droughts are a timely reminder that we need to urgently reduce demand for water so that we don't find ourselves increasingly facing shortages in the future. The regulatory framework and way we charge for water must change to drive more efficient behaviour and encourage industry to build more resilience into its infrastructure. We are hopeful this will be addressed by the ongoing Ofwat review."
