Regulatory decisions for water abstraction

Temporary regulatory decisions to help deal with issues arising directly from the coronavirus pandemic

Water abstraction returns

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

We will contact licence holders directly when we are able to accept returns for both the periods 1 April 2019 – 31 March 2020 and 1 April 2020 – 31 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.
