SID: Strictly Sid on Ice to sign the Water Efficient Pledge05-Dec-2012
Sid the Shark was down at the Royal Pavilion Ice Rink last week to show his support to Southern Water’s water efficiency campaign.
Southern Water are a Community Partner of Sussex County Cricket Club and with water metering arriving in Brighton and Hove this month, local residents are being asked to make a water efficient pledge, underneath a unique Southern Water Pledge Christmas tree created from water bottles, which represent the average household’s usage.
When completed in 2015, the five-year metering project to install nearly 500,000 water meters across Kent, Sussex and Hampshire could save 30 million litres of water a day - more than enough to meet the needs of Worthing, Eastbourne and Bognor Regis combined. Furthermore, they are installing meters which automatically detect leaks in customers’ pipes – the first of their kind in the UK – to save a further seven million litres a day.
