It has 110 pages and takes around two hours to read.

Summary documents

It's 51 pages and takes about 90 minutes to read.

Catchment Strategic Plans (CSPs)

We've split our DWMP into 13 planning areas. Each CSP provides a breakdown of the plan for that specific area in our region. They cover the estimated impact of future risks and challenges in that area, plus the long-term plans we've collaboratively developed to tackle them. 

The CSPs range from 30 to 50 pages. It should take about 45 minutes to read each one.

Technical appendices

These provide supporting detail on the DWMP development stages, assessments and key topics. We’ve developed nine new appendices since our draft plan was published, that are now part of our final DWMP.

There are 22 technical appendices in total. They mostly range from 10 to 120 pages, taking from 20 minutes to around two hours to read. 

Portals and data tables

Our Customer portal and Practitioner portal provide a visual and geographical display of the data behind our DWMP, as interactive maps. 

We provide our DWMP data in a table format for our regulator Ofwat, for comparison against other water companies.
