Hello. Sign in.
You are here : At Home > Corporate > Environment > Chalk Streams
We have committed to ending unsustainable abstraction, which is the process of taking water from deep underground in the chalk aquifer.
The River Chess is a globally rare chalk stream and we have stopped taking groundwater from the river. This helps us achieve part of our ambition to restore this globally rare habitat.
England is home to 85% of the world’s chalk streams, which together make up a globally unique eco-system. But they are under threat due to lots of reasons including abstraction, increasing population, historical river changes and climate change.

Plans are underway to reduce abstraction in the River Ver, River Mimram, Upper River Lea and River Misbourne by summer 2024.
We are developing innovative solutions that will allow us to bring water from other areas and move it around our supply area more effectively, as well as looking at new sources of water for our supply area.
This will help us achieve our mission to provide high quality water and take care of our environment, now and for future generations.
