Water in the UK

Water in the UK

Introduction

The UK has a great variety of landscapes, land uses and population density, all with differing water availability and requirements. Some areas have a water surplus, some a deficit, but the areas of surplus are unfortunately not usually the areas of greatest water use. Predicting future demand for water has to be done, but has not been accurate in the past. Adding to the complexity is the necessary consideration of what a changing climate will do to water demands.
