Affinity Water Resources Management Plan – Consultation

Affinity Water has recently published their Draft Water Resources Management Plan, which describes how much water is going to be needed by their customers and how they will meet this need in the years ahead between 2020 and 2080.

Affinity serves parts of north-west London and the home counties. Their plan considers both current and future customers’ demand for water and looks at the amount of water that is available, whilst considering the impact of factors such as climate change and drought.

With a rising population and some of the highest water use in the country, they are addressing the challenges of serving customers in an area the government has designated as being under serious water stress.

 

The public consultation is open to customers and stakeholders from 19 March to the 23 May 2018.  For more information and to have your say, click here.

Affinity invites key stakeholders to meet them to discuss how they can plan for the future. Please contact jake.rigg@affinitywater.co.uk for more information or to arrange a meeting.

 

 Below are a few simple steps that Affinity suggest we all can take – whether a householder, business, community or a council:

  • Help spread the message to the communities you serve: Every little step we can all make will collectively have a big impact on water usage.
  • Turning off the tap off while we brush our teeth can save 6,500 litres of water a year.
  • Avoid baths – take a short shower instead to save on average around 50 litres each time.
