There is a growing perception that increasingly complex regulations are driving unsustainable outcomes across the water industry. This study reviews the existing economic and environmental regulatory regimes within the context of a move towards a more sustainable regulatory regime.
The report clearly sets out recommended areas for priority action in England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland; either in regulatory or legislative change, regulatory incentive mechanisms, or in regulatory policy and approach. The outputs, which form a detailed action plan and roadmap towards sustainable regulation, will inform future negotiations.
Whilst there has been considerable progress in the topic of sustainable regulation, the current policy landscape is rapidy changing and this provides a timely opportunity for taking forward the views and recommenndations identified. The key recommendation is that water companies seek to adopt the roadmap, where possible aligning with their own strategic objectives, and lobby for necessary recommended research/policy changes.

Exploring the Cost Benefit of Separating Direct Surface Water Inputs from the Combined Sewerage System09/WM/07/13 - ISBN: 1 84057 533 6

The project objective was to prove the concept of having a decision support tool(s) that enables the financial comparison to be made between removing infiltration from the sewer network and continuing to accept the flows, at ... More...Price: £250 Add to basket
