How Rainwater Harvesting is protecting against droughts, reducing flood risk and saving carbon. 3 for the price of 1
It is safe to say we are all feeling the heat at the moment, especially water companies who ensure homes and businesses are supplied with a clean, consistent supply of water! With widespread droughts causing water shortages across the UK, water suppliers are struggling to keep supplies flowing. Read more here.
It’s time to act now on the rising issue of water scarcity. If we choose to leave the problem, our drinking water supplies could be at risk of not coping with a growing population and increasing drought periods in warmer months. Although water is relatively cheap in the UK, the true cost on our surroundings is often not considered. Read more here.
It’s Water Saving Week – the most important date in the water conservation calendar!

Do you know about The Global Water Summit 2022? The event is currently taking place in Madrid and is designed to encourage conversations about the future of our water supplies. Conversations around water financing, strategy, new technologies and innovation will take place so that industry leaders can consider their strategies going forward. One key area that the leaders will be talking about is water reuse, a technology which is becoming more widely used in new and existing buildings.
Although only 28% of people are aware of the current water crisis, it still plays an important factor in the coming decades unless we make a big change. The Chief Executive of England’s Environmental Agency himself has stated that we may be facing a tipping point where demand surpasses supply of water in just 25 years’ time.
Like many other industries, hotels, swimming pools, leisure centres, gyms and other leisure venues all use large amounts of water each day to provide memorable experiences for thousands of guests. But what if we could provide memorable experiences for the whole family without relying on ageing water infrastructure?

Adapt or Die, England faces water shortage of 3.4 billion litres per day, (says EA) and Rainwater Harvesting could be the solution!
‘Adapt or die’. That’s the message from the UK’s Environment Agency in their latest report to be released next week. The message acts as a stark warning to not only governments, but to our wider society that we need to adapt our water consumption habits to prevent water shortages in the future. One way we could do this is through rainwater harvesting!
It is important now, more than ever, that everyone has a good understanding of sustainable construction so that we are equipped for future challenges! After all, 80% of buildings we will be living in by the year 2050, are those which we are building now. So, if we act now, 80% of buildings in 2050, will be sustainable. That’s why we’re going to be using this week’s blog to delve deeper into the concept of sustainable construction and why building more sustainably is essential to combat future water stresses.
At Stormsaver we are always considering our surrounding environment. That’s why this week we are focusing on a growing concern amongst environmental scientists. Droughts are increasing in frequency across the globe, particularly in the UK. Our blog will guide you through what they are, the different types of droughts and how we can help manage supply to protect us in the future.
It is no secret that water quality is an essential requirement of any rainwater harvesting system, but why is it so important? Our focus this week at Stormsaver shines a spotlight on the importance of filtration, the crucial tool to maintaining optimum water quality levels. No matter who supplies your rainwater harvesting system you should consider what filtration you need and the costs and requirements of maintaining your filtration components.
The UK is going to be impacted by serious droughts and floods within the next 30 years. There is a 1 in 4 chance of a severe drought between now and 2050. 1 in 6 properties in England are at risk of flooding, and since 2013 we have seen 85,000 new homes built within areas of high flood risk.
A blog to discuss the "existential threat" we face as a result of climate change and our rising population. By 2050 it is predicted that there will no longer be enough water to supply demand. We need to reduce our mains water consumption and start acting now!
