North East | Scottish Water Project | CCF Groups

You may be surprised to know that although Scotland experiences a lot of rainfall it does still suffer from water shortages – rainwater can replenish rivers, lochs and reservoirs quickly but levels can also drop rapidly when there are periods of dry weather. Also, less than 1% of rainfall actually ends up somewhere Scottish Water can access it. As a result of this, and also the energy and electricity required to clean waste water, using water wisely protects the environment and cuts down Scotland’s carbon footprint.

Scottish Water is working in partnership with Home Energy Scotland (HES) and the Energy Saving Trust (EST) to help householders be more water conscience, in turn saving energy and money. On behalf of Scottish Water HES advisors distribute water saving gadgets to householders (please see attached leaflet). As part of the project delivery HES North East has started to connect with their partner Climate Challenge Funded groups to attend various events where face to face engagement can be held and water packs can be distributed. To date, HES North East has combined with Blairgowrie and Rattray Development Trust (BRDT) and Gate Church in Dundee and had much success in supporting these groups at various events and spreading the water saving message.

If you would be interested in finding out more information on the project or partnering with HES North East, on the Scottish Water project, and receiving support at various events then please contact Laura Head, Water Efficiency Specialist, direct on 01224 063780 or Laura.head@ne.homeenergyscotland.org.uk
