This report has been prepared in response to a request from the Secretary of State for the Environment for an update on the current water resources situation and prospects for the summer of 1996. The report outlines: the state of water resources at the start of April which normally marks the end of the winter recharge season; the actions which companies have taken over the winter to assist resource recovery and secure supplies to their domestic, industrial and commercial customers; the prospects for water supplies in an average summer; water company plans for managing supplies in the event of a repeat of a hot dry summer such as that experienced in 1995; and contingency measures planned by water companies should the drought extend beyond the-autumn.
