The author discusses the catchment management in the water industry in Great Britain. Water companies are working closely with farmers and stakeholders across the region to reduce the amount of nitrate, colour and turbidity in raw water, pesticides and phosphorus in raw water supplies. It is hoped that catchment management will help reduce the water treatment cost and secure compliance with drinking water standards.
