Catchment Management

image of cowpe reservoirThe aim of catchment management is to protect and enhance the water environment through managing the surrounding land. We have a long history of doing just that on the 56,000 hectares of land we own around our reservoirs – many of which you can visit and enjoy for yourselves.

Our award winning sustainable catchment management programme (SCaMP) has been successful at demonstrating how by working together we can manage catchments for water quality and other benefits such as an improved natural environment. We are now expanding this approach to catchments where we take water from but don’t own the surrounding land with our work in safeguard zones.

And that’s not all. We think that by working with others on a catchment approach we can benefit the lakes, rivers and coastal waters where we return wastewater through our new Catchment Wise project.
