By 2020, more than half of the UK’s population will be in the habit of bathing.
It’s a big deal.
But what if you don’t have to wash your clothes, and your clothes aren’t the cleanest?
If that sounds like you, then the UK could soon be installing 1,100 water purification plants in all its regions.
The scheme will cost the UK £7.6bn over the next 10 years, which will allow for the establishment of up to 20,000 additional water purifying stations.
It will also reduce demand on water resources, reduce pollution, and boost local economies.
The scheme is being unveiled by the British Water, which is the country’s leading water supplier.
Its chairman, Chris Bevan, said:The water crisis in the UK is a global issue and we have been working together to tackle it by investing in clean, reliable, efficient water supply.
The UK has the lowest amount of fresh water in Europe and is a major supplier of fresh and chilled water to some of the world’s most important cities.
We are proud to support the British government in its efforts to improve the UK water supply and deliver significant savings to the economy, while providing significant benefits to the local community.
The scheme will be funded by a £6bn Water Infrastructure Levy, and the government is aiming to achieve a net gain of £6.4bn over 10 years.
The government is also targeting a 15 per cent reduction in water use by 2020.
Water companies have been calling for the UK to upgrade its water supply, with some of them estimating that by 2030, the country could have enough water for 100 million people.
However, as the UK has become one of the countries most heavily polluted places, the government has made little progress towards achieving the targets.
In a statement, Bevan said: The UK is one of only three countries in the world that is not a member of the World Health Organization’s global strategy to reduce pollution from water, and it remains a major source of global water pollution.
The global strategy sets out a set of action plans to reduce the amount of water that is wasted and the use of water by developing countries.
We believe the UK will be a key member of that strategy, and we will work with our partners in the sector to make sure we can meet the UK targets.
In a speech at the launch, Bevin said the UK would be investing in new, sustainable technology to meet the challenges of water conservation, water efficiency, and water supply in 2030.
The scheme, he said, would allow the government to deliver its targets on the ground, and to deliver greater economic benefits.
Bevin said that by 2020, the UK was on track to achieve more than 200 million litres of fresh drinking water for every 1,700 people.
