Title: National water resources development strategy : water company consultation paper
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
The NRA has a general duty to ensure the proper use of water resources. Under Section 188 of the Water Resources Act 1991 it also has a duty to publish information from which assessments can be made of actual and prospective demands for water and actual and prospective water resources in England and Wales. In fulfilment of these duties the NRA is committed to publishing a strategic framework for the development of new water resources for England and Wales to meet demands up to the year 2021. Development of the strategic framework is a multidisciplinary project, involving yield assessment, demand forecasting, resource engineering, costing and environmental assessment. The principal aim of this Consultation paper is to present our forecasts of demand to the year 2021 and to elicit comments upon these forecasts. In addition, the opportunity is taken to inform companies of the other aspects of the work leading to the development of the NRAs strategy. The project is being executed in discrete units, with the NRA regions and various external consultants undertaking a series of individual inter-related studies.
