Water UK responds to Environmental Performance Assessment results published by the Environment Agency

In response to the Environmental Performance Assessment published by the Environment Agency on Wednesday 12 July, a Water UK spokeperson said:

“This week’s results demonstrate the need to further accelerate improvements in environmental performance.”

 “We have seen a reduction in the number of serious pollution incidents, companies have delivered virtually all environmental projects required by the regulator, and over 99% of sewage works now meet the rules in their legal permit. However, the performance of some companies, as they acknowledge, is not improving fast enough and pollution incidents remain too high.”

“The industry is strongly committed to accelerating the pace of improvement, including with a £10bn overhaul of our Victorian sewage system to transform our rivers and seas.”
