The Environment Agency has a duty to secure the proper use of water resources in England and Wales. We monitor water in the environment, and issue 'abstraction licences' to regulate who can take water from the environment. These specify the amount of water someone can take from a location over a period of time. We also have a long term strategy for Water Resources that looks 25 years ahead and considers the needs of both the environment and society.
DEFRA is responsible for all aspects of water policy in England, including water supply and resources, and the regulatory systems for the water environment and the water industry. These include: drinking water quality,
the quality of water in rivers, lakes and estuaries, coastal and marine waters, sewage treatment, and reservoir safety.
