Water Resources Management Plan


We’ve reached an important stage in helping to secure future water supplies for today’s and tomorrow’s customers.

In May 2013 we published our draft Water Resource Management Plan, which sets out what we will need to do, where, and by when, to meet the future need for water from people, businesses and also the environment. We asked for customers’ views on these proposals during a 12 week public consultation.

We thank everyone who took part in the consultation and we have now published a Statement of Response which explains how we have considered and taken account of the views received.

Customers overwhelmingly supported our proposals to reduce demand for water, such as through our water efficiency, on-going customer metering and leakage reduction programmes.

The next step in the process will be for Defra to review the plan and we now await the Secretary of State’s direction on whether we can begin work on its implementation.
