WELSH Water has said that it has “no concerns” despite reports that water levels at the Nant y Moch reservoir near Aberystwyth are looking low.
The Cambrian News reported “The water at the reservoir has been pictured this week at very low levels as the heatwave continues in Ceredigion and across the UK.
But Welsh Water said it is happy that that water levels are where they “should be for this time of year” and has not yet felt it necessary to issue a hosepipe ban.
A Welsh Water spokesperson told the Cambrian News: “Although we’ve had a relatively dry period across our operating area and forecasters are predicting the weather is set to remain dry for the coming weeks, we currently do not have concerns regarding water resources.
“Customers may notice that some reservoirs look low, however, water levels are where we would expect them to be for the time of year.”
Welsh Water added that it is advising customers to “be mindful of how they use water and avoid wasting it”, but said that it remains unconcerned over resources and that teams have been out and about fixing leaks over the past week to conserve supplies as the hot weather continues.
“Our message is to use as much drinking water as you need, but please don’t waste it,” the spokesperson added” here.
