Many water companies currently have their latest draft Water Resource Management Plans (WRMPs) out for public consultation. These are the companies that take water out of our precious rivers, affecting the water environment, fish and other wildlife that depend upon it. What eventually makes it into these plans will have major implications for our rivers over the next five years – and beyond.

Please ensure that anglers’ voices are heard in the consultation process by following the links below. You don’t have to fill in their online questionnaires – you can send an email direct to the company and the Secretary of State at water.resources@defra.gsi.gov.uk

If you want to find out what your local Rivers Trust has had to say about the WRMPs in your area, you can contact them directly and ask to see their submission. A full list of Rivers Trusts is available here.

Please note that in some regions there are also smaller ‘water supply only’ companies operating.

Many of the water companies are also running stakeholder forums, which you can register to attend in order to find out more about their plans. Check the websites of each company to register for these forums.
