Consumer Council for Water
Chance to learn more about ground-breaking drainage project
A ground-breaking project to protect a community in Cardiff from the threat of sewer flooding will be discussed when the Consumer Council for Water (CCWater) meets in the Welsh capital on 22 September.
Members of the public can hear more about how the Greener Grangetown scheme is progressing from some of the team leading the project during the water watchdog’s meeting in public at Cardiff City Hall.
The scheme – one of the first of its kind in the UK – will create a series of green spaces throughout Grangetown that will use sustainable drainage systems to divert surface water into the River Taff, easing the pressure on the city’s sewerage system during heavy rainfall.
CCWater’s Wales Committee will also be joined by senior representatives from Severn Trent Water as the watchdog examines the impact the company’s takeover of Dee Valley Water has had on customers in North Wales.
Tom Taylor, Chair of CCWater’s Wales Committee, said: “The takeover of Dee Valley has been a particularly hot topic in Wales so we are looking forward to hearing how things have been progressing and what the experience has been like for customers.”
“Our meetings are also a great opportunity for consumers to put their questions or concerns directly to us or their water company.”
There will be a slot at the start of the meeting at 10am when consumers can voice any questions they might have for CCWater or water companies.

The meeting will be followed by CCWater’s Stakeholder event at 1pm. For more information, please follow this link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/customer-matters-wales
