Water Strategy

It is our job to ensure that we as a company are prepared to meet the challenges of climate change and the ever-increasing population.

The Water Strategy Group's main function is to ensure that there is an adequate supply of water for our customers for the next 25 years.

We use population forecasts and information on water use to estimate demand. We also consider housing trends, ownership of water-using appliances, water efficiency and the use of water by industry. Future resources are assessed by the study of river flows, groundwater and the impact of climate change.

We use computer models to put together this information on supply and demand to help us develop our future strategy, which could include encouraging customers to use less water or building new dams.

Water is our most precious resource. If you are enthusiastic about making sure that we make the best use of it, for both our customers and the environment, we want you on our team.
