With rain often comes a sense of hope for replenishing water supplies, and with the recent record rainfall in the UK many are wondering whether this will have an impact on watering restrictions. In December, the UK say record rainfall and the highest river levels ever seen in England as a result of that rain.
The succession of storms running through the north of England actually did very little to replenish diminishing water supplies. In the areas that received the majority of rainfall water is primarily drawn from rivers and reservoirs. It’s the south where water supplies are drawn mainly from underground aquifers and where rainfall is desperately needed most. According to the CEH just a few short months without substantial rainfall may cause water tensions.
