Through providing our client, Anglian Water, with an excellent level of service prior to this project, they set us here at Mott MacDonald the challenge of delivering a reliable, sustainable and affordable system of water supply to meet multi-sector requirements across the East of England for the next 100 years.
So that we could achieve this goal, a customised framework, based upon robust decision making, which included vulnerability assessment for the existing system and stress testing of options to the range of future scenarios, needed to be made. A preferred portfolio of sequenced interventions was also key to success.
As a result, what was put in place was a framework for collaboration and shared decision making by all key stakeholders across England. A water resource strategy designed to meet threats from population growth and climate change, and provide reliable, affordable supplies of water from sustainable sources resilient to the effects of severe drought.
