Water for Life – Hampshire
Hampshire has always relied on rivers for drinking water. However, to protect the health of local rivers, we must reduce how much water we take from them when flows are low. This means investing in new water sources for the region.
Otterbourne Water Supply Works improvements
We're investing £800m across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight between now and 2030 to ensure a reliable water supply for your community and to protect and enhance the environment.
North Hampshire sewer network improvements
We’re improving the North Hampshire's sewer network to reduce the amount of groundwater and surface water entering public and private sewers and improve the area's protection against issues such as overflowing and flooding.
Work to increase the capacity of West Wellow Wastewater Treatment Works near Romsey is underway, in an effort to further reduce the use of storm overflows.
Candover Drought Order Scheme
We have now decided how and where we would build the pipeline and will be presenting our planning application in early 2023.
We’re building additional storage at Woolston
The climate is changing, and we predict there will be more frequent and fierce storms. Therefore, to deal with future challenges, we need to ensure we have additional storage.
