Water crisis warning for U.K. after hottest summer in 40 years

  • U.K., August 20, 2018: The experts in the U.K. are worried that the hot and dry conditions may cause extreme water shortages in the region if necessary actions are not taken. The rising temperatures could even lead to a severe water crisis.

    The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) has urged the major cities to carry out research on what infrastructure they required to maintain a good service. It has also encouraged improved water recycling and drainage when constructing new buildings.

    It added in the report, Water: Drought And Flood, the Government needed to make contingency plans to deal with the decreased water supply. Before it even got to that point it said politicians needed to release a campaign encouraging people to preserve water. The group also called upon the water industry to produce plans to deal with droughts and floods.
