The BBC says:

Water wastage needs to be tackled to prevent the "devastating effects" shortages can have on the environment and wildlife, campaigners have warned.

The impact of the current drought in England has been made worse by leaks, careless household use and "needless" land drainage, they say.

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds' report has been backed by the WWF, formerly the World Wildlife Fund.

More stringent efficiency standards for new homes are among its suggestions.

Do you really need experts to write such a report? And is this anything other than the usual litany of complaints that the world is going to end unless everybody spends all their time worrying about things that most people have neither the time nor inclination to worry about?
