Water UK response to Ofwat accelerated spending announcement

In response to the announcement from Ofwat & Defra, of £1.6 billion of investment brought forward to speed up vital water infrastructure projects, a Water UK spokesperson said:

“Water companies are taking comprehensive action to improve the nation's rivers and now, with this approval by Ofwat, we will be able to accelerate our efforts further.

“Today's announcement recognises the need to move faster. It represents a down-payment on what will be one of the largest infrastructure programmes ever to improve our waterways and help protect against climate change.”
