Maintain our fresh Ennerdale water.

This petition had 5,817 supporters

Here in West Cumbria we have received fresh Ennerdale water since the 1850's, the current situation is not up to scratch. We, as a community are accustomed to the pleasant, soft water of Ennerdale and should not have to make do with a 50:50 mix.

I propose that the Environment Agency should allow United Utilities to draw the entirety of our water supply from Ennerdale Water, until the completion of the Thirlmere pipeline project in 2022. If this is not possible then limitations should be put in place to prevent the mixture exceeding an 80:20 blend.
