Buying for the future

We have regulation bodies such as the Drinking Water Inspectorate, Environment Agency and European Commission placing demands and conditions to increase our environmental performance and operational efficiency, when we are buying for the future.

Every five years, we, together with all of the other water companies in England and Wales, submit a business plan to Ofwat, the water regulator, outlining the investment we want to make to our network of pipes, sewers, water and wastewater treatment works and reservoirs.

We are already putting plans in place to develop an appropriate procurement strategy to deliver our AMP6 (2015-2020) Capital Programme commitments.
