Water Resources Management Plan 2020–70

Find out more about our water resources plan, published in December 2019, which details how we plan to keep your taps flowing for the next 50 years.

Our Water Resources Management Plan (WRMP) sets out how we intend to supply healthy, reliable drinking water to more than one million homes and businesses for the next 50 years.

We publish a new plan every five years so we’re continually updating it to reflect changes in your views, the need to protect the environment and the latest information on climate change and housing growth figures.
