Abstraction: Mere


We are committed to taking less water from environmentally sensitive areas at times of low river flow and where the impact is not sufficiently clear to warrant changes to abstraction licences. 

Working with the Environment Agency, we have reviewed abstraction licences listed in the Water Industry National Environment Programme.

We have also carried out a review of other abstraction licences where we have community engagement on the issue. 

This review reconfirmed Mere as a suitable abstraction site.
