Water purification is being considered by Britain’s Cabinet as the country’s future water supply after the country leaves the European Union.
The Government is to finalise its plans on Monday with ministers saying they are “still assessing” what the country will need in the coming months.
“It’s a big question mark as to whether or not we will be able to produce enough water,” a Cabinet Office source told ITV News.
A Government spokesman said that the UK was still assessing the needs of the country.
“We’re working with the water industry and other partners to ensure that we can meet the needs for the long term, including to ensure the safety of the water supply,” the spokesman said.
Britain’s water supply is critical to the country and the country is a key component of the EU water supply system.
On Monday, ministers are due to finalize plans for a “Water Supply Plan 2020”, which will outline the countrys future water needs, and a plan for the transition period from EU membership.
The plans will come after years of talks between the UK and EU, but it was unclear how much progress had been made.
Water from the Clyde, a water-rich and highly polluted body of water, is considered the UK’s “main supply” of drinking water, and has a huge impact on the quality of the rest of the UK.
