About our revised draft Water Resources Management Plan

Within the next five years and beyond there will not be enough water to meet increases in demand, unless we make changes. Doing nothing is not an option. We need to act now to ensure there is enough water for future generations.

Our Water Resources Management Plan sets out how much water is needed in the future and how we will meet this need, it is a long-term plan from 2020 to 2080.

This plan will affect you and your community so it is important we take your views into account. We need to make sure our plan addresses the challenges we all face and provides the best value for customers and the environment.
