The Water Resources chapter of the Construction Code required Crossrail to prepare a strategy for handling water resources issues in consultation with the Environment Agency (EA) that would be based on accepted industry practice. It also required that the process for agreeing the strategy include liaison and consultation with key stakeholders. The output of this process was the Water Resources Strategy.
The Water Resources Strategy provides an overview of the Crossrail scheme and the legislative background, the various documents and the systems that are in place to help ensure the protection of water resources and the major water resources stakeholders and their remits during construction of Crossrail. It also highlights the key water resources issues and how these will be addressed throughout the construction process.
