This week (26th January – 1st February) is Debt Awareness Week, an annual campaign run by debt charity Step Change. If you are struggling to pay your water bill, you should get in touch with your water company to discuss the range of options available to you.
Under Final Determinations announced by Ofwat today, average water and waste water bills will come down by 5% in real terms over the next five years – a decrease in the average bill across England and Wales of £20 by 2020.
The water sector has provided the first of a package of measures to help developers build more quickly the new homes that are so urgently needed.
The UK water industry is fully committed to delivering essential infrastructure and supporting the government's National Infrastructure Plan. However, water supply and availability needs to be at the heart of our decision-making for communities, businesses and agriculture - we can no longer just assume water will be there when and where we need it.
