Water Company Plans

Several of the water companies have Water Resource Management Plans out for consultation at the moment, with the first of those closing very soon. These plans lay out how the companies intend to find water for, in many areas, burgeoning human populations, then dispose of our waste. This should be critically important to those of us in the water-starved south and east of England, perhaps most pointedly to those of us who fish, love our rivers and value wildlife conservation.

The Angling Trust has produced an excellent response to the Thames Water consultation (closing 29 April), with links to the other companies’ consultations: www​.anglingtrust​.net
