Thames Water plan to safeguard water resources for the future

Community news on behalf of Thames Water | 10 January 2023

Thames Water has developed a plan, looking ahead to 2075, to adapt to the pressures on our water resources and ensure we have a secure water supply for future generations and protect our environment.

Water is essential to life. Every day we turn on our taps to wash, cook and clean at home, and run businesses, schools, and hospitals. The environment and wildlife also relies on healthy, flowing rivers to thrive.

The plan includes actions to manage our current water resources efficiently, such as tackling leakage and using water wisely, as well as developing new water infrastructure including a new abstraction on the River Thames near Teddington.

Thames Water is consulting on the plan until 21 March 2023 and wants to hear what you think. Read the plan and join in the consultation.

Thames Water is also holding an information event at the Old Town Hall, Whittaker Avenue in Richmond from 2 to 8pm on Monday 16 January 2023.

The event will give residents a chance to talk to the team on the choices that we need to make now, to ensure we have a resilient and sustainable water supply in the coming years.

To attend the event you can register online. If you are not able to register, don't worry, everyone is welcome.
