Our public consultation on our draft Water Resources Management Plan (WRMP) closed in February 2023.
We received 223 responses from our customers, stakeholders, and regulators. We looked at the responses and published several documents in response to the consultation, which can be accessed below.
What happens next?
We have sent all the documents to Defra (Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs) for review. If they are approved, we will publish our final WRMP in the winter.
What is a Water Resources Management Plan (WRMP)?
Every five years, we produce a Water Resources Management Plan (WRMP) which addresses the balance between water supply and demand. Population growth, climate change, and higher-than-average water usage per person are putting significant pressure on our local environment and water resources in our region. Water is a precious resource, and we need to balance providing high-quality drinking water with the needs of the local environment. The WRMP provides a roadmap for a reliable, resilient, sustainable, efficient, and affordable water supply to customers between 2025 and 2075.
