Hafren Dyfrdwy thanks its customers for being water saving heroes as heatwave approaches

Friday 16th July

With the region predicted to be hit with a heatwave over the next few weeks, Hafren Dyfrdwy has thanked its customers for being water saving heroes so far this summer and issued a reminder to be mindful of non-essential water use as the weather heats up.

Heather Hateley, water efficiency lead at Hafren Dyfrdwy, said: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to all our customers who’ve shared their tips and tricks for saving water so far this summer. While the weather has certainly been a lot wetter than last summer and our reservoirs are in a healthy position, the challenge can be to treat the water and pump it out fast enough to meet demand, especially when temperatures increase and people start to spend more time outside. So, while easy changes such as filling the watering can instead of using the garden hose or switching off the garden sprinkler might feel small, when they’re all added up they can make a huge difference.”

As part of its summer campaign, the company is running a competition offering its water saving customers the opportunity to win a day out. All customers need to do is upload a photo, video or drawing/design of their top tip to Facebook or Instagram by midnight on Sunday 25 July and explain their idea or top tip in the description – by using the hashtag #HDWaterSavingHero they’ll be entered into a free prize draw to win a £200 gift card for use in a variety of restaurants, theme parks and hotels.
