Drainage strategies

Drainage and wastewater strategies

Through the Drainage and Wastewater Management Plan, we are planning and working with stakeholders at three levels, the most local being at an individual Water Recycling Centre (WRCs), formally known as Sewage Treatment Works, catchment level to produce locally specific Drainage and Wastewater Strategies. These strategies detail how ours and partners’ objectives for the networks and WRCs are delivered in a WRC catchment depending on its individual characteristics, specific challenges, and the partners we are working with.
