No date to lift hosepipe ban in North East Lincolnshire
ANGLIAN Water bosses are “not willing to speculate” about when the hose pipe ban will be lifted – despite the latest update showing water levels are back to normal.

However, Anglian Water are refusing to put a date on when people will be able to use their hose pipes again.
A spokesperson for the firm said: “We are not willing to speculate about when the ban will be lifted.

“It took us two years to get into needing this hose pipe ban, which we all want lifting as soon as we can.
“But we have to be absolutely sure that when we do it is the right time.
“It is not something we wanted to happen and the situation is an awful lot better than it was. But while the surface waters like reservoirs and rivers have recovered significantly, the groundwater supply levels have not.”
Meanwhile experts are urging people to continue to use water wisely.
Managing director of Anglian Water, Peter Simpson, said: “The possibility of a warm summer and a third dry winter is still a concern for our region.” The very wet few weeks we experienced in April followed two exceptionally dry years, and most importantly, two dry winters.”
