Consultation description

We want to know what you think about how best to manage abstraction as water availability falls and drought develops. These changes would be in the reformed abstraction management system.

This follows the UK and Welsh Governments December 2013 consultation on abstraction reform proposals. In that consultation we committed to carry out further work on abstraction reform and drought.

We have produced a supporting document to provide further information on current drought management.

Update: The closing date was amended to 10 October 2014 to give respondents more chance to comment on the discussions.
