The Risks

Summary of our recommendation to the business following internal consultation

  • Continue to proactively disallow general access to swimmers and bathers

  • Make Three reservoirs available for well managed events where the access, size and facilities are suitable and there is a Catchment team in the location – Thirlmere, Rivington and Torside

  • Establish terms and conditions

  • Integrate the into our access / charging policy

Summary of early responses from the business internal consultation

  • Findings and recommendations presented to Reservoir safety group, Treatment Managers and Operations board and considered more carefully by Legal and corporate responsibility section

  • Biggest concern still focussed on mixed messages

  • A willingness to consider very high profile swimming events only

  • A request for options which encapsulate what constitutes the high profile events to allow a final recommendation
