Our strategies and plans

Our drought plan

Our drought plan sets out how we will manage our water resources during dry years to ensure that essential public water supplies are maintained.

Our drought plan looks at the options available to us to help manage supply and demand, and the triggers for different levels of action. It also sets out how we will minimise the impact on the environment caused by our actions and how we will talk to our customers and our regulators during a drought. This drought plan is a statutory document.

Drought plan consultation

 We review our drought plan every five years and we consulted on our draft plan during autumn 2017. Our consultation closed on 6th October 2017 and we have made changes to the draft plan as a result. We have published our 2018 final drought plan following approval from the Secretary of State in July 2018.
