We prepare two plans which set out how we’ll secure a resilient water future for customers in the south east.

Our Water Resources Management Plan (WRMP) looks ahead to understand how much water we need in the future and identify the best ways to secure resilient supplies. Every water company in England and Wales produces a WRMP and must update it every five years. Each company must plan for at least 25 years.

Our Drought Plan explains what we’ll do to manage our water supplies when a drought occurs.

Water Resources Management Plans

We supply drinking water to over one million homes and businesses in the South East. We’re required to plan ahead to make sure there’ll always be enough water available.
