Thames Water has published its draft Water Resource Management Plan (WRRMP) 2024 proposing a number of solutions to address the challenges and projected shortfall between future water resources and future demand.
Thames Water is expecting shortfall in water resources due to increases in population, reduced abstraction allowed from chalk streams, and climate change.
The solution proposed to be delivered first is a new abstraction and discharge point on the River Thames at Teddington, with updates to Mogden STW (Sewage Treatment Works). The proposal is to abstract up to 75 million litres per day from the Thames and pump this via an existing pipeline to reservoirs in north-east London, for supply. The water abstracted would be replaced by treated effluent from a new, advanced treatment point at Mogden STW.
The completion date for this plan is 2031.
Thames Water want to hear the views of residents across London, and this include residents in the London Borough of Hounslow.
Thames Water are holding a public consultation on the Water Resource Management Plan 2024.
This closes on the 21 March 2023.
