We are trusted to plan for drought and trusted to deliver these plans if and when drought periods occur – we must continue to earn that trust every day. Welsh Water’s long term ambitions have been set out in our Water 2050 document and this places the maintenance of wholesome water supplies at its heart. One of our key strategies is what we have titled “Enough Water For All”. In essence, this is to ensure that we always have sufficient water in line with our customers’ expectations, even in times of drought. Our Water Resources Management Plan and our Drought Plan are at the centre of this strategy.
Producing and maintaining a Drought Plan is a statutory process required by Government who have set out the legal basis for this in The Water Industry Act 1991. We are directed by Welsh Government who also provide the guiding principles for our plan. We have worked closely with Natural Resources Wales who produce the Drought Planning Guidance for water companies in Wales. Our Drought Plan sets out how we will deal with drought conditions within both the urban and rural parts of our supply area, and how we will monitor the effect of any actions that we take on the natural environment.
