Water Resources Planning

What we do

Our staff have detailed experience of water resources planning in England and Wales. Primarily this includes involvement with PR99, PR04 and PR09 water resources plans, and in preparation and audit of drought plans. Recently we have supported SEPA in auditing the first round of its water resource planning for Scottish Water.

Our experience covers all aspects of the planning process from yield and deployable output assessment, systems modelling, headroom and outage assessment, demand forecasting and options appraisal. We also have a detailed knowledge of legislation and regulatory strategies which guide water resources planning.
