A SECOND reservoir at Cheddar is 'integral' and 'essential' according to Bristol Water.
The company appealed to the water regulator Ofwat after it would not approve any spending for the reservoir.
This has been referred to the Government’s Competition and Markets Authority.
In its statement, Bristol Water says a failure at the current reservoir would result in 14,000 homes losing their supply.
