Anglian, Southern and Thames end their hosepipe ban

Anglian, Southern and Thames Water are to end thier hosepipe bans from midnight on 13th June, following the wet weather.

The four other water compaines: South East Water, Sutton and East Surrey Water, Veolia Water Central and Veolia Water Southeast have confirmed their hosepipe bans remain in place due to low levels of groundwater.

Thames Water now allowing watering of new planting


"Embattled landscaping, turf and gardening businesses were made exempt from the ‘hosepipe ban’ today after it was confirmed that record rainfall had reduced the severity of the ongoing water shortage in the South and East of England.


The adjustment to the Temporary Use Bans imposed by Thames Water and six other companies will allow gardening businesses to use hosepipes to water newly laid turf and plants, for up to 28 days."
