Hampshire Southern Water proposed water recycling

I know this site is about saving money but these proposals mean more expensive water, and it's your own and many other people's sewage sold back to them as drinking water. If this goes ahead in Hampshire, it will be on your doorstep soon enough. You only have until the 20th of this month to have your say.

Copied from the Rowlands Castle Parish Council Facebook page SOUTHERN WATER has published its draft Water Resources Management Plan, confirming that its preferred solution for meeting Hampshire's future drinking water needs is to recycle effluent from Budds Farm via Havant Thicket Reservoir. This proposal to supply treated recycled water to your taps is included in two consultation documents from Southern Water and Water Resources South East which you are able to comment on until 20th February 2023. Some things to consider include: - Why do we need to treat and recycle sewage when we get plenty of rainwater to store? - Water taken from the reservoir will taste different
so knowing it contains treated water would you drink it? If not, what will be the environmental impacts of buying bottled water? - A large amount of infrastructure will need to be built, and the high use of chemicals and energy usage will have a great environmental and carbon impact. - The daily discharge of recycled effluent into the reservoir will have adverse impacts on the wetland and biodiversity, and the impacts on Langstone Harbour have not been fully assessed. The Parish Council will be responding to the consultation shortly. You can find out more about this proposal, and how you can have your say by visiting https://havantmatters.org/. You have until 20th February 2023 to let Southern Southern Water know what you think if this plan
