We’ll take our impact on rivers down to 0% by 2030.


Our Farming for Water scheme is only available to farmers in our priority catchments (specific areas across the region where we abstract water to treat and use for drinking water), however we are keen to redouble our efforts and help more farmers, as well as enhancing the support for our priority farmers too.  

With this in mind, from 1st May 2022 we are partnering with Agreena to offer additional support through on-hand advice for farmers across our whole Severn Trent region. We are also offering financial incentives for tree planting through our Trees for Water scheme. 


Urban development and transport account for 11% of reasons for rivers not achieving good status in England.
