The summary document here explains the purpose of the consultation and lists the questions to be answered through the on-line survey. There is also a summary available here of a recent survey of reservoir owners in relation to emergency planning for your reference.

This is a very important consultation to improve the provisions for emergency planning at reservoirs located in England and I urge our members to take the time to respond to it.
