South East Water is inviting customers to have their say on plans to secure water supplies in Sussex.
Two public exhibitions have been planned to show customers how the recently published Water Resources Management Plan will affect them.
The exhibitions are being held on June 4, between 12-8pm, at Arlington Village Hall in East Sussex and June 21, 12-8pm, at South Heighton Village Hall in Newhaven.
The company will also show how it proposes to meet the growing demand for water between 2015 and 2040.
Southern Water say they will do more to tackle leaks and invest in new ways to re-use water to prevent shortages in the South East of England.
The company was criticised by consumers after they were forced to introduce a hosepipe ban in 2012, because there were not enough supplies for its two million customers. Restrictions were lifted after a very wet summer filled reservoirs.
The company is looking to extend the regional network in the South East to secure future water supplies for the next 25 years.
Southern Water will now carry out a three month public consultation on the Water Resources Management Plan for 2015-2040 to find out what customers think.
