With a growing population, London is expected to require an extra 200 million litres per day of potable water by 2025. This has to be found from a variety of resources, as well as from savings or reuse.

Furthermore, to meet the most severe droughts, longer drought permits and orders, and water restrictions lasting nine months or more, may be required. 

A six-month drought order could cost businesses between £750 million and £1.7 billion. This means that water security is a priority issue that must be tackled if London is to be secure for the future. 

Join London First to discuss these problems and possible solutions.


Speakers include:

Professor Chris Rapley CBE, Chair, 
London Climate Change Partnership

Alex Nickson, Water Resources and Growth Lead, 
Thames Water

Christine Cambrook, Associate in the Water Group, 
BuroHappold Engineering
