Recent record breaking UK temperatures

With the Met Office confirming the highest temperature officially recorded in the UK last week and climate change research indicating how rising temperatures result in the loss of freshwater sources, now is the time we should all consider our water usage.

A temperature of 38.7C was recorded at Cambridge Botanic Gardens on 25th July 2019, exceeding the previous record of 38.5C set in Kent in 2003.  The recent World Water Day highlighted how across the globe 1 in 9 people lack access to safe water and the Environment Agency has warned the UK faces water supply shortages by 2050 unless usage and wastage are significantly reduced.    

Please take a look at Waterlogic’s infographic which addresses the critical reasons why people all over the work lack access to fresh water and highlights the importance of a safe water supply.
