Hose Pipe Ban

Following an extraordinary meeting of the Trustees have agreed to impose a hosepipe ban (known as a Temporary Use Ban) following what is believed to be the longest heatwave since 1976.

The ban came into force on Monday 20th August, and is still in force.

Despite some recent rainfall, our water source is struggling to meet demand and with forecasters predicting a return to hot dry weather we are now at a point where we will need to impose some temporary restrictions on customers.


Long Preston Water Trust delivers 30,000 gallons of clean, safe water daily, to about 270 properties in and around Long Preston.  This site has been created to provide the customers of Long Preston Water Trust with information of what is happening to their water supply.
The Trustees of Long Preston Water Trust hope that you will find the site helpful and informative, but if there is something that you would like to see on the site please email webadmin@longpreston.org.uk with your suggestion.
Leaks cost the Trust lots of money, and they can appear any where in our water system.  Whilst the Trust constantly monitors the flow of water through the system, the Trust relies on residents of Long Preston to spot and report leaks.
Long Preston Water Trust also provides water to many of the field troughs. So if you are out enjoying the scenery or walking your dog along the footpaths and byways around Long Preston you see what you think is a leak or an overflowing trough please report it via email, to our Clerk clerk@longprestonwatertrust.org.uk or our Technician technician@longprestonwatertrust.org.uk, so we can investigate and have it repaired.
