How do you think it would be best to encourage abstractors to plan for drought?
Why the contribution is important
Water companies are required to prepare and maintain drought plans. These set out how water companies will respond to a drought - setting out how they will continue to meet their duties to supply adequate quantities of drinking water during drought periods and protect the environment. The plans contain a series of trigger points for action by the companies although they have some discretion in the actions they take.
If other water abstractors planned more for drought the resilience of their businesses would increase during a drought; this could have benefits for the economy.
