Sharing water with neighbouring water companies to extend the regional grid in the South East and move water to where it is most needed.
16 million litres of water each day
2015 in Kent and 2017 in Hampshire
Medway region in Kent and south Hampshire.
These water-sharing schemes were identified through the Water Resources in the South East (WRSE) group, which developed a 25-year over-arching strategy for five water companies in the region.
In Kent, we have agreed to transfer 6.1 million litres of water to South East Water each day from 2015 to supply its customers. We are able to share this water because of new schemes we are developing in Medway.
In Hampshire, we have agreed Portsmouth Water will supply us with 10 million litres of water a day from 2017. This transfer will help balance the amount of water we currently abstract from the Rivers Test and Itchen to supply to customers.
