The Environment Agency has published a summary of their response to the drought planning guidance consultation which took place in 2019.

The consultation which ran from 9th September to 18th October sought views on changes to the water company drought plan guidelines, which are updated every five years.

The guidance which was revised in September 2019 sets out what companies must and should include in their statutory drought management plans. These plans focus on the actions companies plan to take to maintain water supply and protect the environment from their operations during a drought.

The updated water company plan guidance (WC DPG) is due to be published by March 2020. You can download the consultation response summary on the Environment Agency’s website.
