Water UK responds to publication of Event Duration Monitoring data

Responding to the publication of 2022 Event Duration Monitoring data for storm overflows a Water UK spokesperson said:

“This is an important milestone and the fourth consecutive year we have seen a fall in the number of spills from each storm overflow. 

"This is the start of the journey and to ensure we continue to see these numbers move in a positive direction water companies are bringing forward £56 billion of investment to replumb England, fix storm overflows and protect our rivers and seas. 

"There remains much more to be done, and there will be bumps in the road, but companies are committed to building on this positive news to ensure we play our role in bringing about the transformation we all want to see.”
