FourFour2 A new report by the UK government suggests that more than 70% of Britain’s water systems are now failing and are not being updated to the latest standards.
The report, by the Office of Water, shows that water systems across the UK are failing to meet the latest guidelines and that in some areas the water is already being poisoned.
Its findings have been welcomed by the water industry and environmental campaigners.
It’s a worrying development and one that we will be monitoring closely, the British Council, the industry body that represents the industry, said.
We need to ensure that we are meeting the highest standards to ensure our citizens are safe.
This is the first time the UK Government has identified water as a health risk.
There is also an increasing need for more detailed data and analysis to understand how the current system is failing and what measures are needed to prevent further problems, the UK Water Agency said in a statement.
What is drinking water?
Water is one of the most important resources on earth.
It is vital to a country’s health, economy, and environment.
Water filters, filters and other chemicals help prevent the spread of harmful bacteria and viruses that can cause waterborne diseases, such as diarrhoea and the flu.
In the UK, about 95% of the water we drink comes from surface sources and most of that comes from the surface water.
But there is a problem with a large proportion of it being in the underground.
Underground water is much cleaner than surface water and is used to flush toilets, treat wastewater and treat sewage.
And the UK’s water quality has been falling for decades, according to the UK Environment Agency.
More than 20 years ago, it was estimated that there were over a million unregistered underground sewage treatment plants across the country.
Since then, the number of those that are registered has fallen by about 10% every year.
Experts have blamed poor regulation, poor oversight and poor management for the problems.
Over the past five years, the Government has made a number of changes to ensure the water systems can be updated to meet standards.
Some of those include: increasing the maximum water discharge rate from 20 to 40 liters per hour (L/h); improving the design of underground water treatment plants; introducing mandatory chlorine controls and making it easier for the authorities to monitor levels of chlorine; and introducing new monitoring technology to measure water quality.
