LONDON, Oct. 27, 2004 (GNN) -- Businesses in Essex and Suffolk have been learning about saving water in one of the driest, and fastest growing, areas of the country at a special seminar on water efficiency hosted by Essex and Suffolk Water.

Catherine Harvey, chairman of WaterVoice Eastern, gave a presentation to the company's medium and large business customers yesterday (Tuesday). The water company invited the Chairman to present her views on minimizing waste through water efficiency to around 40 businesses. WaterVoice is a consumer advocate on behalf of issues related to water and sewerage services as well as water quality in general.

Catherine Harvey said: "I was delighted to be asked to speak at the seminar, and I believe that attendees found the seminar of value. WaterVoice Eastern is particularly concerned to pass on the message to all customers -- both business and domestic -- on the importance of minimizing wastage of water. There are a range of simple and practical steps that customers can take.

"This event also provided an excellent opportunity for WaterVoice Eastern to engage with business customers to find out their views on water issues."

The seminar covered issues pertinent to the Eastern region, including the implications of it being the driest area of the country and one of the fastest growing in terms of population and economic development. The possible effects of climate change were also discussed.

If your business is in the Eastern region (small or large) and you would like to discuss your views and concerns on the water and sewerage services you receive, please contact your local WaterVoice office at +44 8457 959369 or via email: eastern@watervoice.org.uk.
