Stour catchment


We are starting to develop the first Drainage and Wastewater Management Plan (DWMP) for the Stour 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.​
