Our Plan for 2020 to 2025 (PR19) was submitted to the water regulator, Ofwat, in September 2018.
Within our Plan, we've make the case for one of the biggest investment programmes the region has ever seen. We proposed to further reduce leakage, as well as investing in pipes, pumps and treatment works, and outlining our plans for protecting the environment and ensuring there is enough water to keep taps running for generations to come.
The Anglian Water region is one of the driest and fastest growing in the UK. By 2024 the population is predicted to be 3.3million, plus it’s the breadbasket of Britain, and home to many thriving businesses and industry.
The weather is changing too. Climate change means more extremes of weather - summers are getting drier, winters are getting wetter, short and sharp storms that risk flooding are more likely, as is drought. We have to balance the needs of the environment while supporting this thriving region, and do so while keeping bills low.
Below are the documents we submitted in September 2018. The data tables are dated December 2018 following revisions resulting from queries from Ofwat.
