Helping to secure future water supplies in Wales

We helped Welsh Water in the preparation of their draft Water Resources Management Plan, which sets out how the company will balance the demand for water with available supplies for the next 25 years.

Welsh Water supplies water to 2.5 million people, and like all other water companies in England and Wales they are required to prepare Water Resource Management Plans every five years that set out how they intend to balance the demand for water from customers with available supplies over the next 25 years.

We have worked closely with Welsh Water for over ten years, including work to develop industry leading approaches to climate change analysis and outage data collection. We used this experience to help a relatively new client team deliver a water resources plan that met regulatory requirements and was in-line with Welsh Water's corproate objectives. Our input included specific technical support on water resources modelling, climate change analysis, option appraisal and co-ordinating the delivery of the plan document itself. we also supported Welsh Water in managing the project, working with the client director responsible for the plan to ensure successful delivery of the project.

The draft Water Resources Management Plan was successfully submitted to government and regulators in March 2013 after review and approval from Welsh Water's executive team and board.
