The Environment Agency is due to come into being in 1996. As one of the existing bodies that will make up the new Agency the National Rivers Authoritys (NRA) policies for sustainable development and water conservation will take on a greater significance. Conservation of water resources involves the co-operation of Government, the regulators, the water industry, agriculture, industry and the general public. The NRA as Guardians of the Water Environment is intent upon ensuring that water resources are used effectively and efficiently and not wasted. This consultation report reviews current water conservation and demand management practices both in the UK and overseas, and establishes the potential for saving water in England and Wales. The report then considers elements of a water conservation and demand management strategy, possible responsibilities and how such a strategy might be put into practice.
