Anglian Water has today unveiled a huge £680 million investment programme for the year ahead. The largest investment ever planned for a single year will be spent across the entire East of England, which is the driest and one of the fastest-growing parts of the country.
The funds will be ploughed into areas of work specifically aimed at preparing the region to meet the urgent challenges of climate change and population growth, as well as protecting the environment.
Operating in the driest region of the UK, Anglian Water has often highlighted the future challenges of water scarcity facing the East of England. The company’s largest ever five-year business plan, which began in 2020, outlined groundbreaking schemes specifically designed to tackle this challenge while protecting the region’s environment for the long term. The proposals were wholeheartedly endorsed by customers.
