PEOPLE are being urged not to waste water - despite this summer being one of the wettest ever.
Although downpours have made sure that West Yorkshire's reservoirs are, on average, 92.6% full, Yorkshire Water is offering a range of water-saving tips.
Spokeswoman Clare Dunlop said: "We want to get more customers to think about using water wisely. This is a year-round message, not one we restrict to dry spells."
Miss Dunlop said water butts were a good way to save water.
The recent rainfall has filled butts in people's gardens and this water can be used to keep plants alive during dry seasons.
There are also many ways to save water in the home. Taking a shower instead of a bath saves 18,000 litres of water a year per household and turning off the tap while brushing your teeth will save 17,000.
Other ideas include Yorkshire Water "save-a-flush" bags. These are put in a toilet cistern to restrict the amount of water needed to refill it.
This saves about 4,000 litres of water a year per toilet.
