Annotation: EA additional title info: an environmentally sustainable water resources development strategy for England an Wales
This report is the second in a series of nine supplementary reports which provide supporting information for the National Rivers Authority Water Resources Development Strategy document: "An Environmentally Sustainable Water Resources Development Strategy for England and Wales. This report describes the methodology and results of the assessment of existing and future public water supply (PWS) reliable source yields, carried out by the NRA regions. The ten NRA regions were asked to assess on a common basis: estimated yields of public water supply sources; bulk transfers of water across NRA regional boundaries; possible cutbacks in source yields due to environmental constraints; and potential future regional resource development schemes. The data were assembled by the regions in association with the water companies, and have been reviewed and collated by Halcrow; in so doing every effort has been made to ensure, through communications with the regions, that they are reported in a consistent manner with minimal anomalies.
