Decision expected this week


A decision from the Department of the Environment Food & Rural Affairs is expected this week on whether to allow Southern Water to reduce flows in the River Medway. The water company wants to reduce discharges into the river from its Weir Wood reservoir from 5.4M litre/day to 2.5M litre/ day to make more drinking water supplies available. The Environment Agency opposes the move.
