Bristol Avon drainage and wastewater management plan

Drainage and wastewater management for the Bristol Avon

In the Wessex Water area, we have four management catchments aligned with the river catchments, where we are working closely with strategic partners to identify and deliver solutions for the long-term management of drainage and wastewater.

The Bristol Avon management catchment

The Bristol Avon management catchment spans across parts of Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Somerset. Key urban areas include Bristol and Bath with strategic development planned through the Joint Spatial Plan in the coming years.

How we are working with partners

We are working with a range of stakeholders through the Bristol Avon Catchment Partnership and working groups to identify priority areas and solutions that will deliver multiple benefits for society, the economy and the environment. Our stakeholders include regulators, such as the Environment Agency and Natural England, councils, developers, non-government organisations (wildlife trusts, rivers trusts), as well as customers.
