We are starting to develop the first Drainage and Wastewater Management Plan (DWMP) for the Arun and Western Streams catchment. It is one of 11 river catchment based DWMPs across our operating region covering Kent, Sussex, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. All 11 of these plans will inform a single overarching DWMP for our whole operating area.
DWMPs are long-term investment plans for drainage and wastewater management to ensure the sustainability of drainage infrastructure and systems so they meet the needs of customers and the environment now and into the future.
We have started drafting the strategic context for the Arun and Western Streams catchment DWMP.
Working with others
We want to work with other organisations responsible for drainage, flooding and protection of the environment to develop the Arun and Western Streams DWMP.
Risk based catchment screening

Planning objectives are used to assess the current and future performance of the wastewater systems and identify where action and/or future investment is required.
