IdeaStream

Take the conversation to our IdeaStream forum where you can further discuss the themes raised in our launch event and consultations.

We want to ensure that there is enough water available in the future to satisfy everyone’s needs. As we do that we want to make sure our water supplies are truly sustainable and purse wider benefits, for the economy, and for people’s wellbeing through the work we do. Our vision is that we will realise these opportunities by working together in a collaborative way. Given the scale of ambition, the abstractors can’t do this on their own. We also need input from a wide range of stakeholders. We will need your feedback and your ideas.

IdeaStream covers Options, Water Transfers and Environmental Destination consultations. Under each consultation below, a series of themes are laid out for you to click and join the discussion.

    • Environmental Destination
      Our regional plan brings the opportunity to plan delivery of an Environmental Destination for water resources. This will consider long term opportunities to address environmental issues related to water resources. Through these plans we can consider future water abstraction along with other supply and demand issues and opportunities. The regional plan is considering a timeframe to 2050 and beyond. In our Initial Resource Position we have set out our first thoughts on the environmental needs and ambition for our region. We are seeking input to shape our Environmental Destination through an online consultation which will be open until Sunday 17 January 2021. You can also join the Environmental Destination IdeaStream forum here and discuss the environmental opportunities with others. If there are any additional questions or topics you would like to see us add to the forum, please get in touch and email us at waterresourceswest@outlook.com.

    • Launch Event
      On Friday 16 October we officially launched Water Resources West through a virtual conference and webinar, including an exclusive panel discussion. Lots of interesting questions were raised. Although there wasn’t enough time to discuss them all on the day, we are keen to continue the discussion through IdeaStream. We have grouped the questions into a number of themes.

    • Water Transfers
      One of the potential solutions is to transfer water between different areas of the country, taking water from areas where and when it is available and sharing it with areas where it isn’t. If you have an interest in water transfers, we want to hear from you.

      If there are any additional questions or topics you would like to see us add to the forum, please get in touch and email us at waterresourceswest@outlook.com.
