Join debate on the future of region’s water resources

WATER resources across London and the South East are under growing pressure – so what action is needed to keep the taps running for future generations?

That’s the question that will be posed to water industry experts at a special event being hosted in London on Friday (April 22) by the independent water watchdog the Consumer Council for Water.

Consumers are being invited to join a ‘Question Time’ style debate on what can be done to ensure supply meets demand across the most water-scarce region of the UK.

Sir Tony Redmond, Chair of CCWater’s London and South East Committee, said: “Water companies do a good job of keeping our taps running. But changing weather patterns and a growing population are intensifying the pressure on our water supplies.”

“The action we take now will be critical in securing tap water for future generations and all of us have a vital role to play.”

Water companies from across London and the South East will be discussing the challenges they face managing water resources over the next two decades and beyond.

The meeting starts at 1.30pm in Mary Sumner House, 24 Tufton Street, Westminster. To register your attendance please email
