A Drought Plan is a statutory requirement for all water companies to prepare. It details how a drought will be managed to ensure supply to customers during periods of low rainfall.
A Drought Plan which sets out what steps we would take to deal with a drought to ensure we could deliver a reliable water supply. It covers what actions we will take before, during and after a drought to maintain supply. It also details our communication strategy with our customers and other water companies. Every five years we produce an updated Drought Plan. We seek the views of customers to help shape this through an active consultation on our website.
We work with regulatory bodies and incumbent water companies to ensure that our plans are aligned with best practice, to make certain there is a consistent message during drought events.
