WRSE resilient water future for the South East report

We are collaborating with all our neighbouring water companies to deliver a resilient water future for the South East.

As a water-scarce area, we have less to go around per person than Morocco. The challenges are large. EA chairman Sir James Bevan called population growth and climate change the ‘jaws of death.’ Ensuring enough fresh water requires long-term thinking. This plan sets out different scenarios for future trends and looks at how to tackle them.

It’s too soon to tell which, if any, of the major projects outlined in the WRSE plan will be needed, but the message is clear – we need to think about water, talk about water and change our relationship with water.

Whatever the future holds, we will continue to serve our customers and protect the environment by ensuring clean catchments, tackling leaks and helping our customers to be water efficient.
