Our Water Resources Management Plan

Our Water Resources Management Plan

Planning water resources is a long-term business. That’s why we look ahead 50 years to understand how much water will be available and how much we will need to supply. The first five years of our WRMP will be delivered through our Business Plan 2020 to 2025. 

Draft Water Resources Management Plan 2025 - 2075 consultation

Please note the revised Non-Technical Summary for our draft WRMP will be published shortly.

Final water resources management plan 2019

 

The plan

The final WRMP 2019 sets out our preferred plan to provide secure, reliable water supplies for our customers now and into the future. It considers how the world around us is changing and plans for population growth, climate change and to protect the local environment. It describes the measures proposed for meeting growth in demand from new and existing customers, whilst simultaneously protecting the environment. It also aims to meet the preferences of our customers established through consultation work we have carried out, and takes account of Government policy priorities.

The plan was informed by the results of modelling carried out on behalf of the Water Resources in the South East (WRSE) Group. The WRSE Group, which comprises six water companies, the Environment Agency, Ofwat, Defra, the Consumer Council for Water and Natural England, was set up to determine a regional water resources strategy comprising a range of strategic options to find the best solution for customers and the environment in South East England. The strategic options identified by the WRSE modelling included a number of bulk supplies between ourselves and neighbouring companies. We have discussed these bulk supplies with the neighbouring companies and, where requested, we have included them within our Final WRMP.

Strategic Environmental Assessment

As part of the supporting evidence to the Draft WRMP, we have prepared a Strategic Environmental Assessment. This has been revised and updated to be consistent with the Final WRMP.
