Low flow rivers - AMP3/4
In AMP3 (2000-2005) we worked with the Environment Agency and English Nature on a statement of intent to find a solution to low flower river concerns.
A solution was tested from 2002 to 2010 and the final licence applications were made in 2010-11. Read our statement of intent update.
During AMP4 (2005-2010), the Environment Agency identified a number of further sites, wetlands and rivers, which may be adversely affected by public water supply abstraction.
This was primarily on the Hampshire Avon where the outcomes of work have been included in the Environment Agency’s Review of Consents for the River Avon SAC. See investigations for more details.
We completed this work in 2009 and the proposed reductions in licence have been considered in the Water resource management plan and will be accommodated in the water supply grid, to be completed in 2018.
