Envireau Water has submitted their response to DEFRA’s Abstraction Reform Consultation. Two options are being proposed for reform: Current System Plus and Water Shares.

The two options share the same overarching principles of better environmental protection at low flows and freeing up some of the water currently held under ‘sleeper licences’ but they differ in terms of the day to day management of abstraction which has a knock on effect for the security of supply for a business dependent on water.
