Drainage and wastewater management plan

The Anglian Water region is one of the fastest growing in the UK, which presents unique challenges for us as a water company. We therefore recognise the value in understanding our capacity to support this growth, to create sustainable environments to live and work.

Drainage and Wastewater Management Plan (DWMP)


To be published in 2022, this Drainage and Wastewater Management (DWMP) is will be our next phase in long-term planning, covering the period 2025-2050. Framed by our Strategic Direction Statement, our new co-created 25 year forward vision for the region which will follow on from the Water Recycling Long-Term Plan (WRLTP) published in 2018.


The framework puts emphasis on strong co-creation to ensure the plan joins up the approach and considers all risks from growth, climate change and customer behaviours. The first step in this process is to agree with all stakeholders what measures the DWMP will focus on in the form of a Strategic Context. Following our consultation, in April 2020 the document below has been updated to reflect comments and discussions we’ve had with multiple stakeholders.


We’re looking forward to working with stakeholders on this journey and encourage anyone interested in understanding more to contact us on DWMP@anglianwater.co.uk
