Dear Dee Valley Water plc,

This may also be considered as an Environmental Information Request.

In 1997 the National Rivers Authority looked at the capacity of the River Dee and is regulation scheme to supply, and concluded that with a 1% population growth the ability of the River Dee and its regulation scheme came under stress to supply in the next decade (2020's).

Please could you advise of any subsequent / current studies of the future capacity of the Dee to supply water to its customers.

Many thanks in anticipation.

Yours faithfully,

Colin Watson

Dear Mr Watson

 

Thank you for your query. I am not aware of any formal studies like the
one carried out in 1997; however, the regulation of the River Dee is now
managed by a group called the Dee Consultative Committee, chaired by
Natural Resources Wales (NRW - the environmental regulator for Wales) with
representatives from the 4 main abstractors from the Dee – Welsh Water,
United Utilities, Dee Valley Water and the Canal & Rivers Trust. Each of
these abstractors is required to provide weekly updates to NRW on their
abstraction levels, and the river levels and flows are monitored on a
daily basis.

 

All water companies are required to produce a water resource management
plan every 5 years, which sets out the water supplies they have available
against the predicted demand over a 20 year period. However, these are
obviously restricted to the availability of water for use in public water
supply. In relation to your query about studies on the capacity of the
River Dee to supply water to all users, I would suggest that you approach
NRW for further information as they would be responsible for commissioning
this type of study.

 

I have attached a leaflet which explains how the Dee is regulated.

 

Kind regards

Liz
