Abstraction: Stubhampton


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. 

We have investigated the environmental impact of abstracting water from the Stubhampton borehole in the upper reach of the River Tarrant Valley. 

We found the impact is not environmentally significant but that local concern remains. 

As a result of our investigations, this measure was created and it voluntarily caps our abstraction.
