Water resources

We’re committed to delivering reliable and resilient water supplies to three million households and 200,000 businesses in the North West, at the lowest possible cost. Our Water Resources Management Plan defines our strategy to achieve a long-term, best-value and sustainable plan for water supplies in the North West. Alongside this we have our drought plan which sets out the actions that we would take in a drought.

Annual Water Resources Review

All water companies are required to produce an annual review of their Water Resources Management Plan to ensure the plan remains fit for purpose. In this annual review we update on our water resources activities for 2018/19, as measured against our 2015 Water Resources Management Plan. We have included a forward look at water resources activities in the coming year that will help us to deliver our current plan. We also report on our 2019 Water Resources Management Plan, which comes into effect in 2020, as well as reporting updates to our published Final Drought Plan 2018.
