Scheme to improve water over 25 years

An innovative plan to manage and improve our water system over the next 25 years has been unveiled. Southern Water has this week issued its Water Resources Management Plan for 2015-2040.

Among the topics included are plans to extend the regional network in the south east, tackling leakage and promoting water efficiency. A three-month public consultation is now being carried out to find out what its customers think.

It will run until August 12 and the company plans to issue a statment of response by November 18. The plan will then be updated and the final version published in early 2014.

It sets out how the company proposes to ensure there is enough water for its two million household and business customers whatever the weather.
