Water Savings in Surrey Save Lives in Tanzania

Today BBC Radio Surrey invited Runnymede Borough Council to talk about the significant water savings that it has made through the AquaFund Grant Scheme – and how this in turn has helped thousands of people in developing countries have access to clean water.

Through ADSM’s AquaFund scheme, the Council has saved a significant 26% on its water bill in just one year and helped over 85,000 people out of water poverty through AquaFund’s partnership with the charity WaterAid.

Verena Boxall, Energy & Sustainability Manager at Runnymede speaks about the AquaFund project and how the Council has benefited from receiving all the finance and resources needed to cut its water costs and consumption – without the Council needing any budget

“Everybody is on a win, win with this” says Verena.
