An award-winning green scheme is set to launch in Stanley, County Durham, helping residents to save water, energy and money.

Northumbrian Water’s ‘Every Drop Counts’ water conservation campaign is set to launch on the morning of Friday, June 23, at Front Street, Stanley town centre with North Durham MP, Kevan Jones, unveiling a special work of art at the event.

Members of the media are invited to attend the launch event on Friday, June 23 from 10:30 to 12:00 opposite the bus station on Front Street, Stanley.

Up to 15,000 local residents are being offered the opportunity to receive a home water visit which includes advice on how to make simple changes to reduce water usage and the installation of water saving products. This is a free of charge service being offered by Northumbrian Water which will help homes use less water and also help to reduce other energy bills.

John Devall, Water Director at Northumbrian Water, said; “The scheme has been hugely successful and it is fantastic to see it expanding into local communities. We sometimes take water for granted but we can all play our part to help protect this precious resource.

“We’re committed to helping customers reduce their bills by saving water and I would encourage residents to get involved and request a home visit by our team who will give an expert assessment on what can be done to help save money on water and energy bills.”

Customers who live in the Stanley area can find out more about this offer and sign up for a free home visit online at
