Our current drought plan was published in 2014 and explains what we are doing. We're currently updating this with our draft Drought Plan 2019.
Our draft Drought Plan 2019
We all know it’s better to be well prepared in case of challenging circumstances. As part of our statutory requirements, at Anglian Water we’ve updated our Drought Plan which details our response to potential droughts in our region. We launched the public consultation on our draft Drought Plan 2019 on 22nd February 2019 for eight weeks, until 19th April 2019. We welcome your views and you can respond to our draft Drought Plan by:
email@example.com (please also copy in WaterResources&LicensingTeam@anglianwater.co.uk in your response)
Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), Drought Plan Consultation, Water Resources, Seacole 3rd Floor, 2 Marsham Street, London, SW1P 4DF
We will consider all representations and produce a Statement of Response to outline any changes we have made to our plan within 15 weeks of the publication date. The Secretary of State will then consider whether to issue any directions for the final Drought Plan prior to final publication.
Our draft Drought Plan 2019 is made up of several documents, which are all available to view and download here:
Supporting Technical Appendices
Strategic Environmental Assessment
We have to plan for the future – for a time when there will be more people, different weather patterns, warmer temperatures, and probably less rain.
Every five years we produce a Water Resources Management Plan (WRMP), which describes how, for the next 25 years, we’ll cope with these challenges and still keep the balance between the water we want, and the water we’ve actually got. We have recently updated our WRMP, which you can read here. Our Drought Plan links closely with our Water Resources Management Plan.
