Summary

Water is something that most people in England and Wales take for granted. In fact, it is a precious resource that faces increasingly severe demands and conflicting pressures. It is the responsibility of the Environment Agency to manage water resources and to plan for their future use. This strategy sets out how the Environment Agency believes water resources should be managed throughout England and Wales to 2050 and beyond to ensure that there will be enough water for people and the environment.

The pressures on water resources and the water environment mean that careful planning is essential to ensure there is sufficient water for society and the economy, as well as the environment.

There are a number of areas where action is required, such as the need to allocate water resources more effectively in the future. This document identifies the actions believed to be necessary, and in particular those that are needed to deal with the serious challenges of growth and climate change.

There is no single, easy solution. The Environment Agency looks forward to working with a wide range of organisations to secure water supplies and a better water environment for future generations.
