If preventive steps are not taken, in less than three decades, Britain might run out of water, the chief executive of the Environment Agency, a public body responsible for conservation in England, said on Tuesday.

The reasons, he said, were climate change and population growth. And he called for a change of attitude toward water conservation to help tackle the problem.

It probably won't take long until some politician calls that a result of the Brexit.
