Want to know our plans to cope with water shortage because of a drought?

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 have updated our Drought Plan which details our response to potential droughts in our region.


Our new Drought Plan was published in April 2022, following a public consultation between June and August 2021.


We have checked to ensure that our Plan does not include any information that would be contrary to the interests of national security or is commercially confidential.


Our Drought Plan 2022 (DP22) is made up of several documents, including the main plan, customer and stakeholder summary, appendices and environmental assessments. These are available to view and download below:



Drought Plan 2022

Water Resources Management Plan

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. Our Drought Plan links closely with our current WRMP (WRMP19) which can be read here. We are also now developing our new plan (WRMP24) which you can view here.
