Drought Plan

We’ve created a Drought Plan to demonstrate what steps we’ll take to maintain supplies while protecting the environment in the event of a drought.


Our Drought Plan

Our Drought Plan sets out how we would deal with a drought in Sussex, Kent, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

It outlines the steps we would take to make sure we can maintain supplies of drinking water to our customers while minimising the impact on our rivers and the environment during drought events. For each stage of drought, we determine what needs to be done, by who, to help reduce demand, so water supplies can be maintained. Temporary Use Bans (TUBs) and Drought Orders are part of this.
