Consultation description

A joint consultation by Defra and the Welsh Government on Schedule 4 of the Flood and Water Management Act 2010 which contains changes to the Reservoirs Act 1975.

We intend to make changes in two phases:

Phase 1

Changes will come into force for existing large raised reservoirs only.  These are reservoirs that can hold more than 25,000 cubic metres of water above the natural level of the surrounding land;

Phase 2

Changes will come into force for smaller reservoirs that are over a new threshold figure of 10,000 cubic metres of water above the natural level of the surrounding land or any different volume of water specified by the Minister.
