Campaigners have voiced concerns over where up to two million litres of drinking quality water will come from every day to cool the reactors of the new Sizewell C nuclear power station if it is built. Together Against Sizewell C (TASC) says that Suffolk is one of the driest places in the UK and is worried about the £14billion project’s impact on and security of local mains water supplies. EDF Energy says investigations are under way to see how water demand can be managed. TASC has been left frustrated because full details of where the water will come from have yet to be provided and claims its questions have been “ignored, skipped over or evaded”.
