Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
Annotation: EA additional title info: April 1998
This paper provides an interim commentary on the current status and potential for water resources and supply within the SERPLAN region (South East Region) and on the position in those areas adjacent to the region which depend on the same water resources systems. The issues and uncertainties regarding growth in demand for water, opportunties to manage demand, the potential impacts of new development proposals and the sustainability of available water resources to meet new development pressures is considered. In many instances, the effect of increasing the current rate of household provision is to bring forward an already anticipated potential deficit in water resources. Demand management actions carried out over the short to medium term will be critical in offsetting supply - demand imbalances. A region wide summary is provided for the SERPLAN region accompanied by a breakdown on a county by county basis. The information is primarily related to public water supply and housing/population growth issues. Waste water disposal and river quality issues are not addressed in this paper but may be equally significant.
