Future Water Resources In The Thames Region sets out a strategy for the future planning and sustainable management of water resources to meet the reasonable needs of public water supplies, industry and agriculture in the region. The strategy aims to: sustain the natural resource for future use; provide a flexible framework for water resources management and development in the region; secure proper safeguards for the water environment; identify opportunities to enhance the water environment, particularly in association with new schemes but also to address existing problems such as low flow rivers; respond to the reasonable expectations of social and economic development. In March 1994 the NRA published Water: Natures Precious Resource addressing the future management and development of water resources in England and Wales. A number of key policies and issues were identified: sustainable development; precautionary principle; managing demand; and new schemes.
