Affinity Water and Park Holidays UK in the Clacton area are celebrating the success of a new initiative to help holiday seekers to save water by introducing new water saving measures.
Over Five million litres of water (nearly 15 million standard cans of coke) have been saved on two sites in just one month and water bills have nearly halved after new water saving devices were fitted to supplies, showers, toilets and washing facilities. We are still working on site and are confident there a lot more savings to come!
Holiday makers can now rest assured that the water supplied to their campsites can be sustained across the parks throughout their stay.
Affinity Water staff have been working with Park Holidays to target some of their holiday parks and help reduce their water use.
Water Saving Project Manager Steve Johnston said: “Our logging data and Metrix measurements show that the water saving measures we have introduced at Park Holidays, holiday sites are having a highly significant impact on the demand for water. We know that as the population swells over the summer and school holidays, demand for water increases and by using these new measures for the first time this year we have been able to continue to keep our customers supplied with water.
“Clacton is situated in a water-stressed area, and we knew from experience that in the summer months demand for water increases.
“This is a really exciting and new project, something that’s not been done before – it’s great to be involved and leading the way. It shows others in the water sector what can be done if you work closely with holiday providers in water stressed areas.”
Affinity Water carried out surveys on the five holiday parks run by Park Holidays and Haven in the Clacton area. It reviewed their logger data from 2018 to the present day, to know how much water was being used. Some holiday parks were found to be using in excess of 250,000 litres of water a day, which is very high.
Mr Johnston continued: “By helping the holiday park owners to make a few changes to the areas we identified, we have really helped them not just to cut water use but to reduce their water bills too which is a business cost to them. Just with the current completion of two parks, with 3 still currently being worked on, we have also saved over 4 tonnes of carbon which is fantastic. This has also helped us to manage peak summer demand, and to resolve production issues that might have occurred and thereby improve customer satisfaction too.”
Affinity Water staff have put in place water saving devices at the holiday parks. These include:
The logging data is reviewed regularly to measure what the benefits have been.
Affinity Water has partnered with H2OIQ Ltd to do the installations and has been working closely with its Water Regulations teams to make sure the fittings and installations meet a high standard.
Affinity Water’s Head of External Communications Kevin Barton said: “This is a win-win for everyone involved. We wanted holiday makers to the region to enjoy themselves, particularly as many of them will have been going out for the first time since the Covid19 restrictions have been eased. These specific new water saving fixtures and fittings have ensured their holidays have been uninterrupted.
“One of the additional benefits of this project is that we have formed closer relationships with holiday park owners in our region and we have spoken with local retailers so we’re keeping everyone in the loop and living our values to be a community focused water company as the largest water only company in the UK.”
