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.
