Future of the water sector

Water companies are contributing expertise and perspectives to inform the debate on the future of water, in partnership with all the sector’s stakeholders.

Looking forward 25 years and more, the water sector faces challenges from population growth, climate change, tightening environmental standards and changing customer expectations. These challenges will require both significant further investment and continuing evolution of the sector’s regulatory framework.

The Ofwat Water 2020 discussion paper published this month sets out some of the challenges facing the sector and the questions these challenges raise.

No one organisation has all the answers, so Water UK is hosting a marketplace of ideas, where water companies are setting out their thoughts on future of the water.

It is only by all stakeholders in the sector working in partnership that, together, we can ensure that the sector continues to provide reliable, resilient and value for money services for its customers.
