More than 17,000 Essex & Suffolk Water customers in Barking will be offered a completely free water saving visit from a qualified plumber. The visits include the installation of a number of free water saving products, and is worth up to £130.
Alongside the free water saving home visits, Essex & Suffolk Water will be running a number of events and initiatives with the local community in Barking to spread the Every Drop Counts message. This includes local school visits from the Super Splash Heroes - an interactive play and workshop which helps children learn the importance of saving water. There will also be a number of community outreach and customer engagement events.
Martin Lunn, Head of Technical Strategy & Support for Essex & Suffolk Water said: "We are very passionate about working with our customers to help use water wisely. We are really proud of our long history of engaging with hundreds of thousands of our customers to help them save water, which is great for them in both helping save money on their utility bills and in protecting our environment. Our award-winning Every Drop Counts campaign is a fantastic way for customers to help ensure that our precious water resources are used as wisely as possible."
In 2017 Every Drop Counts took place in Witham, Essex where we completed 2,800 home visits, saving approximately 83,000 litres of water a day, and saving each customer approximately £24 off their annual water and sewerage bill.
