Water resources management is about making sure there is enough water for homes and businesses while protecting the natural environment.
Our Water Resource Management Plan outlines how we will maintain a sustainable balance between water supplies and demand over the next 25 years.
It describes how we propose to maintain that balance by investing in demand management – metering and water efficiency for example – and developing new water resources.
Our services must cater for an increasing population and underpin and support economic growth. We must also take account of the changing climate and the need to protect the environment. We’ll need to use a whole range of different measures to make sure everyone has enough water: more efficient water use in homes and businesses, wasting less water, providing more storage and finding new water sources.
Have your say
Our draft Water Resources Management Plan 2014 is now available. We are running a 12 week public consultation and we’d like to know what you think. The key elements of our plan are:
- Supporting water efficiency, so that customers only use the water they need
- Reducing the number of leaks from the network of pipes that transports water
- Transferring water from where there is a surplus to areas of shortage
- In the long-term, developing additional supplies.
The Plan is available using the link below or available in hard copy at our main offices:
- Anglian House, Ambury Road South, Huntingdon, Cambs PE29 3NZ
- Thorpe Wood House, Peterborough, Cambs, PE3 6WT
You can tell us what you think by post or email using the details below.
Once the consultation has finished we will prepare a statement of response that we will publish to let you know how we have considered all of your comments and how this will be reflected in our final Plan.
