Managing water resources

Ensuring we can provide high quality and reliable water supplies to customers now and in the future requires a lot of planning.

Every five years we prepare a Water Resources Management Plan (WRMP), which sets out in detail how we plan to achieve this goal in a way that is affordable and takes into consideration any environmental pressures on our water resources over the next 25 years.  In the meantime, our current plan remains in force. 

We need to ensure we are able to maintain a surplus of supply, known as headroom, over the expected demand for water.
