This study and report respond to the Commission and Terms of Reference for the project from NRA Thames Region. The overall objective has been to identify and assess feasible water resource development options to meet estimated growing demands for water in Thames region to the 2021 planning horizon. Future demand forecasts have been provided by the NRA for the purposes of this study. Demands are expected to exceed present water resources capacity by a substantial margin, whilst environmental and water quality requirements also increase. The study has been subject to certain basic assumptions viz: adoption of given demand forecasts; environmental and water quality requirements met by imposed constraints rather than by resource development per se; continuance of present arrangements relating to residual flows at Teddington.
