ABSTRACT
The article discusses the need to change the way water management is regulated and implemented in Great Britain. A new water management approach must respect natural river catchments and their processes, and considers human impacts upon water from source to sea. Introducing full metering and intelligent tariff schemes could halve the deficit between supply and demand predicted by 2030. A water efficiency commitment would help in moving towards a water service rather than a water supply culture.
