Repeating callsfor efficient wateruse


Scottish Water is again calling on people across Monklands to use water efficientl­y after storage levels in reservoirs fell to record low levels during the dry summer.

Following the second driest summer in 160 years in some parts of Scotland, storage levels in reservoirs are at 66 per cent – the lowest recorded for this time of year since 2003.

Kes Juskowiak, Scottish Water’s water operations general manager, said: “People might assume that, because there has been some heavy rain recently, there is no longer an issue with water supplies.

“That is absolutely not the case and maintainin­g normal supplies remains a massive challenge for us.

“If residents, visitors or holidaymak­ers can take some small, simple steps to reduce their water use, they can make a big contributi­on towards our efforts to maintain normal supplies for everyone.”
