A lot of thought and consideration has gone into making this the right plan.
Following the initial screening, almost 600 of our water recycling catchments were risk assessed to the year 2050 to understand the impact from future growth and climate change. Our DWMP now contains the solution strategies for these catchments, together with timescales.
Our plan is designed to be flexible, with regular monitoring, and we’ll continue to work with our stakeholders to make sure the right solutions are carried out at the right time.
Our DWMP indicates that over the next 25 years, investment of up to £5 billion is needed to address the future risks highlighted in our DWMP to manage the risks of growth and climate change, to fix some existing problems, and to meet the storm overflow discharge reduction targets.
