‘No drought’ in North Devon
Water resources in Devon and Cornwall are looking good, says utility company.
SOUTH West Water has said it is confident there will be no restrictions on water use in North Devon this summer.
The company said water levels in its service area of Devon and Cornwall plus small parts of Dorset and Somerset were in a “good position” despite recent press reports referring to a drought in the South West.
It said these were focused on the situation in the larger region that included Hampshire, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Bristol.
“We are confident this will be our 16th successive summer without water restrictions,” said a spokesperson.
