HC Deb 30 April 1984 vol 59 c40W

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what improvement in impounding water stocks and its distribution within England have been achieved since 1976.


An exhaustive reply would require additional time and involve disproportionate expense. Major water resource developments completed or put in hand since 1976 have included:

Name of Scheme Responsible Authority
Kielder Northumbrian WA
Grimwith Yorkshire WA
Carsington Severn-Trent WA
Rutland Water Anglian WA
Ardingly Southern WA
Wimbleball South West WA

There have also been numerous minor schemes in all authority areas to augment water resources (including groundwater resources as well as impounded water) and to improve distribution.
