Water Resources Management Plan

Water Resources Management is a way we ensure that we balance the demand for water in our supply area against the available water resources whilst minimising the impact on the local environment. 

Our Water Resource Management Plan shows how we plan to supply enough water to meet demand over the next 25 years.

This is a statutory process introduced by the Water Act 2003 and we consult with our stakeholders and invite comment during the process.

Trading and Procurement Code

The Trading and Procurement Code sets out the policies, principles and requirements that will apply in respect of trades of water between Affinity Water and third parties including other water companies. We will keep this Code up to date and available here. The approved Code will also be available on the Ofwat website.

Water Resource Planning (WRP) tables  2020 - 2080

Our Water Resource Planning (WRP) tables are available by clicking the link below. The tables are correct as of our draft WRMP submission to DEFRA December 2017. The purpose of the WRP tables is to assist readers of the main dWRMP19 to understand how we have calculated our supply demand balance on a water resource zone (WRZ) level, along with presenting the timing of options selected to maintain this balance. These WRP tables are draft plan tables. We will replace the current downloadable versions with a revised set of WRP tables in due course which will support our final WRMP19. Our WRP tables are consistent with our Market Information tables.

Water Resources in the South East (WRSE)

Our draft WRMP19 has been developed alongside the WRSE regional water resource strategy. By clicking on the following link you will be able to read about the collaboration and technical work that we helped to support as a contributor to WRSE. WRSE has the aim of producing an affordable, sustainable and resilient regional strategy for water – one that delivers for customers, society and the environment across the whole of the South East of England. The document also provides some thinking and future direction on how the WRSE believe the regional coordination of water resource management in the South East could evolve over the coming years.

Affinity Water and KPMG: New Business Models in the Water Sector

In 2016, to help inform our strategic planning work for PR19 we considered a range of new business models that could form part of the solution to the water resource challenges associated with climate change, drought and a growing population.
