ENV15 - Water abstraction tables

Annual water abstraction estimates for England and Wales.

Data on the number of licenses held and estimates of average abstraction in millions of cubic metres are presented for non tidal waters (groundwater and non tidal surface waters) and tidal waters, and by the following purpose categories:

  • public water supply
  • spray irrigation (agricultural and non agricultural)
  • agriculture (excl. spray irrigation)
  • electricity supply industry
