High temperatures and low rainfall are putting the UK in a worrying situation as water supplies come under increasing pressure. Many parts of the UK are already under ‘prolonged dry weather’ warnings.
According to British ‘Sky News’, the United Kingdom is in trouble with the weather forecast, while England’s Environment Agency warns that the country could enter drought conditions in early August. Forecasts indicate that the hot and dry weather will continue for the next few weeks, but there is still hope for rain to return by the middle of next month, which may bring some relief to parched lands.
However, if thermometers continue to show high temperatures, water resource management agencies may have to make cuts in non-essential domestic and commercial consumption.
This Tuesday, the National Drought Panel, which includes water companies, the Environment Agency and the National Farmers Union, will meet to decide on the best strategy to improve water use in the UK.
The group has already said that the dry weather has hit farms in the central, eastern and southern regions of the country most strongly, with predictable impacts on this year’s harvests. Brown fields, low-flowing rivers and dry lakes are already evidence of the UK’s extreme heat and lack of rain.
It’s worth remembering that last week Brits faced their hottest day on record, with thermometers hitting 40 degrees.
An official from the British Environment Agency told The Guardian: “We have had a long period of dry weather this year, which has led to exceptionally low river flows in much of England and reduced reservoir levels in Yorkshire and the central and south-west of the regions”. Country.
He adds: “Recent warmer temperatures will increase the potential for local impacts and put pressure on aquatic ecosystems and wildlife.”
