Bowls England Water Survey

Is your club paying more for its waste water than it should be?

Most water companies automatically assume that approximately 95 per cent of the water supplied to any property is returned to the sewer and charge accordingly.

However, if your usage is metered and you use a considerable amount of water in such a way that it does not return to the sewer, for example watering your bowling green, then you can apply to the company for a non-return to sewer allowance.

We are aware that a number of clubs who have been battling for several years to get their water company to provide an allowance.

We now want to find out the national picture and have launched this short survey to assess our clubs’ needs in order to assist our future negotiations with water companies on your behalf.

Any club wishing to check their individual position in the short-term can do so by requesting an application form from your water company and assessing how much of a discount you are entitled to if you can evidence how much water is not returning to the sewer.

Please take a few minutes to fill in the survey and we will see what can be done to help.
