This week's water scarcity report from SEPA was issued yesterday (23 June 2023) and can be viewed here
Overall, this week's report is similar to what came out last week. The general consensus from SEPA is what whilst recent rainfall has eased the situation a bit in quite a number of areas, this has still not been enough to bring about any sort of significant recovery in the overall situation, so more rain is still needed in order for that to happen.
In fact, the region of significant water scarcity which had already covered a small part of NW Scotland, has even been extended to include a small part of Dumfriesshire. In addition to that, there are also a few areas which were previously at alert level, but which are now at moderate water scarcity level.
However, the recent rainfall has also allowed a few areas to move out of moderate water scarcity in the other direction, to alert level with the rest of the moderate water scarcity area remaining as it is.
Everything else is the same as last week with the rest of Scotland remaining at alert level for water scarcity with the exception of Shetland which is still at early warning status.
This means that as of this week, nowhere in Scotland has actually returned to normal on this front just yet.
