Regulatory decisions for water abstraction

Water abstraction returns

We will delay requesting water abstraction returns for the period 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020 until spring 2021.

We will contact licence holders directly in spring 2021 to request returns for both the periods April 2019 - March 2020 and April 2020 - March 2021.

You should keep recording data as detailed in your licence if it is safe to do so, following the latest social distancing guidance from the government.

If you have already sent your returns to us there will be a delay with us processing this data.
