Compliance with abstraction licences - All our abstractions of water from the environment are covered by EA permits which specify the maximum volume we are allowed to take in a given day and in the year - some licences can be very complex. This measure records the percentage of total days which are in breach of a licence at any source.
We are targeting 100% compliance in every year.
There is no financial incentive associated with this measure.
In 2018-19 we achieved the 100% target and we forecast that we will continue to do so in the future.
