We prepare two plans which set out how we’ll secure a resilient water future for customers in the South East and keep taps flowing during droughts.

Our Water Resources Management Plan (WRMP) forecasts how much water we’ll need in the future and proposes a mix of options to make sure we have enough. We’re currently consulting on our draft plan for the next 50 years.

Our Drought Plan explains how we’ll manage water supplies when droughts occur, such as we experienced in the summer of 2022.

Our consultation on our draft water resources management plan closed on 20th February 2023. We’re developing our Statement of Response and will publish it on 31st August 2023.
