The main water supplier in Staffordshire is urging people to use water wisely.
Severn Trent says more than 2.2 billion litres of water was used across its region on Monday this week.
This means, on average, customers used an extra 60 litres of water per person – on top of the 145 litres normally used.
The company say that while it’s reservoirs are in a healthy position, it’s seeing a day-on-day increase in demand for treated water due to high temperatures and is asking customers to use water wisely and reduce non-essential usage where possible, by making some simple changes.
