A new reservoir in the Fens
Anglian Water and Cambridge Water are proposing a new reservoir in the Fens that will secure water supply to our customers for future generations.
The reservoir will store water so it’s on tap when we need it, meeting the challenges of a changing climate and a growing population. It will mean less water is taken from sensitive sources, helping us to protect and restore the environment.
The project presents significant social, economic and environmental opportunities for communities and the whole of the East of England.
Our proposals are at an early stage. We understand the effect on those impacted by our proposals including homeowners, landowners and the nearby community, and are committed to working with everyone as the project develops.
Our phase one consultation closed on 21 December 2022
Thank you to everyone who took part. We have carefully reviewed all of the feedback received and a summary of what we learned is available here.
The summary details the key themes that arose during the consultation and how we will take them into consideration as our proposals for the reservoir are developed.
Your comments and ideas are a key part of developing the reservoir to minimise, where possible, its impact, and create benefits for both people and nature.Find out more
