Improving rivers: WINEP


Every five years the Environment Agency produces the Water Industry National Environmental Programme (WINEP) which aims to benefit the environment. 

It lays out a set of requirements for water companies to address. These vary by region but include schemes or areas for investigation such as: 

  • reducing excessive plant decay and growth 
  • investigating chemical risks 
  • improving inland water for fish. 

We are committed to meeting these requirements and measuring our performance against them.

Please note that this commitment has been adjusted as a result of the coronavirus pandemic; the Environment Agency delayed some delivery dates to take into account the delays in construction.
