Monthly water reports for England (on-line)

Water situation report for England

The Environment Agency's monthly water situation report for England routinely measures and reports on a range of hydrological parameters to assess the water situation across England. This is done using their own hydrometric data, together with data provided by the Met Office and water companies.

They do this for:
  • the amount of rain that falls
  • how dry the soils are and how much rain they can soak up
  • the amount of water flowing in rivers
  • the amount of water stored below ground in aquifers and above ground in reservoirs
  • the outlook for river flow and groundwater over the coming months
Regional water reports are also produced on the 10th of each month.
