Water supplies for the conurbation of Brighton and Hove and surrounding area are entirely dependent on groundwater. These resources are under pressure from increasing demand and the risk of more severe future droughts.

Through the National Environment Programme, ecological and hydrogeological data collation and analysis has guided the development of conceptual and numerical models of the aquifer. Stochastic recharge time series representing both historic and projected future severe droughts and climate change scenarios have been considered to support resilient water resource investment and management plans for the next 25 years and beyond.
