Barking residents are being encouraged to save water in an 'every drop counts' campaign.

More than 17,000 Essex and Suffolk Water customers in the borough are being offered a free water-saving visit from a plumber, who will install products to help them economise their water usage.

The company will also be holding workshops at schools and community outreach events to teach people about the importance of saving water.

Martin Lunn, from Essex and Suffolk Water, said: “We are very passionate about working with our customers to help use water wisely. We are really proud of our long history of engaging with customers to help them save water, which is great for them in helping save money on their utility bills and in protecting our environment.

“Our campaign is a fantastic way for customers to help ensure that precious water resources are used as wisely as possible.”

Last year the campaign visited Witham in Essex, where it carried out 2,800 home visits and helped save 83,000 litres of water per day.
