Long-term planning

By providing an excellent service for our client on previous projects, we were given the chance to show our long term plans when it comes to reliability, sustainability and affordability of water supplies.

ExpertiseVulnerability assessment, scenario planning, robust decision making


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.
