Water Scarcity and Security in London
With a growing population, London is expected to require an extra 200 million litres per day of potable water by 2025. This has to be found from a variety of resources, as well as from savings or reuse. Furthermore, to meet the most severe droughts, longer drought permits and orders, and water restrictions lasting nine months or more, may be required. A six-month drought order could cost businesses between £750 million and £1.7 billion. This means that water security is a priority issue that must be tackled if London is to be secure for the future. The briefing will look at the challenges and what businesses can do in resilience planning.
