Drinking Our Rivers Dry?
In Britian, most of our water comes from rivers and the vast underground aquifers that feed them. But environmentalists fear we are pushing some of them and the wildlife they support to the edge.
With many of our rivers at the limit of what can sustainably be taken from them, Simon Boazman investigates whether the water industry and its regulators are doing enough to protect the nation's delicate ecosystems.
Simon also asks how much we actually know about the water we consume, how much we use and where it comes from? With a bit of effort, how much less water can we use?
