Record levels of rain this April will have little affect on hosepipe bans, Synergy Client Solutions understands.
Synergy Client Solutions, a customer acquisitions company in Bristol had recently reported on the hosepipe bans facing much of the UK so when they first read that April would be the wettest month on record they had assumed that our drought worries would be over. Apparently not so.
Some areas of the UK are expected to be hit by a month’s worth of rain in just a few days and the Met Office has issued severe weather warnings across some areas of southern England and eastern Scotland. Synergy Client Solutions would like to echo the warning issued by a spokesperson for the Met Office who said, “The public should take extra care and be aware heavy rain may lead to localised surface water flooding and poor driving conditions.”
Synergy Client Solutions understands that the extreme weather is to include thunderstorms, heavy snow in the Scottish mountains, flood warnings in Devon and tornado clouds have been spotted in Manchester, Durham, East Anglia and Lincolnshire.
Experts however continue to insist that the downpours will have little effect on the drought in Britain which is the worst since 1976 when standing pipes had to be installed in towns throughout the country. The Environmental Agency has said that because the soil is so dry only steady rain during the winter will have an effect and wash into rivers and groundwater.
A spokesperson for Synergy Client Solutions said, “Residents might find it frustrating that with all this rain, drought measures are still in place. Unfortunately it simply isn’t enough at this stage to have any substantial effect. We can be pleased that we won’t need to get our hosepipes out to water the garden but should stick to the instructions given to us to help prevent further measures when summer finally comes around.”
