Supply source: 27% surface, 70% ground, 3% mixed
A hosepipe ban across the whole area since 3 April 2006 will expire on Wednesday 7 February 2007.
A hosepipe ban had been in place for the company's Sussex and Kent supply areas since 30 July 2005.
It was the first time since 1993 that a hosepipe ban has been introduced across the whole of South East Water's supply area.
Three-quarters of South East Water's supply comes from aquifers - underground reserves. These are normally replenished by winter rainfall but two relatively dry winters in a row have seen the levels diminish.
The company also draws on the Arlington and Ardingly reservoirs which are currently full after dipping to below half capacity in October 2005.
South East Water is majority-owned by Macquarie European Infrastructure Fund.
