Individuals with concerns about Thames Water's plans can express these in a number of ways without needing specialist knowledge.

1 Act Now to respond to Thames Water's consultation.
Complete the online response form

or write to the consultation team at water.resources@defra.gsi.gov.uk
with title “Thames Water’s draft water resources management plan
in the subject line.

Copy to

the Environment Agency at
water-company-plan@environment-agency.gov.uk

and Ofwat at wrmp@ofwat.gsi.gov.uk.

GARD' summary of the major objections to the proposal to advance the reservoir construction, and to the reservoir itself, can be found here and here.

3 Encourage your friends to join GARD.

4 Inform GARD of any details, complaints or other information which might be of use in challenging Thames Water's plans.
