Powwow water

Ban the hose when washing the car

Impose your own hosepipe ban when washing the car

Use buckets of water instead of a hosepipe when washing the car. All you'll need is 3 or 4 buckets of water, but you could be wasting 7 or 8 times more with a hosepipe. The traditional Sunday afternoon pursuit of washing the car can be a wasteful one if done with a hosepipe.

Opting for the more traditional bucket and sponge approach can use up to 8 times less water and you’ll still get the suitable scrub and shine you want for your motor.

For an even more economical car wash, install a water butt onto the down pipe from your guttering. This will collect rainwater that can then be used to wash your car without having to waste household water.

The first Hampshire Water Festival took place in August 2015 in Winchester and was a great success with 10,000 visitors.

The Hampshire Water Partnership was formed in 2001 and is composed of a wide range of organisations who are stakeholders in water in Hampshire. Its main aim is to ensure the long term future of Hampshire’s rivers, aquifers and wetlands for people and wildlife. see www.hampshirewaterfestival.co.uk. The Hampshire Water Partnership was established in 1999 to foster increased understanding and knowledge-sharing about Hampshire’s water environments and the issues facing rivers, wetlands and aquifers. It comprises private, public and voluntary bodies who have a role or interest in the sustainable management of this unique water environment. The Partnership has no executive powers, but provides a forum for closer working relationships, information dissemination, and discussion on topical issues.
