CCW responds to water companies’ apology for sewage spills

We have today responded to Water UK’s apology for sewage spills and the industry’s £10 billion plan to modernise the sewer system.

Emma Clancy, Chief Executive of the Consumer Council for Water (CCW), said:

This could signify a turning point in water companies taking ownership of tackling the challenges facing the sector. Protecting and enhancing the environment is the most important issue for people when it comes to building trust in water companies but investment will ultimately impact customers’ bills. Water companies will need to work far more efficiently, but we also need a comprehensive baseline of financial support for the one in five households already struggling to afford their bills.
