Over the next 25 years the water sector will require significant further investment and continuing evolution of the way it is regulated.
Speech by Pamela Taylor, Water UK Chief Executive, Water UK Innovation Hub, Tuesday 16 June 2015
Tap water in the UK is among the best in the world and worth looking after. Unlike the frozen ready-meal or new dress or suit, there are no care instructions supplied with water. This consumer guide shows how to keep water in top condition and avoid problems that can affect taste and quality.
Following widespread consultation with developers, self-lay companies and their representative organisations, water companies have introduced a new set of standards for the provision of water and sewerage infrastructure for new homes and other construction projects.
Water bills on average comprise less than 1% of household expenditure, and water companies continue to help all hard-pressed UK households by charging stable and affordable prices.
