Watchdog pleased by Anglian Water’s pledge over extra investment

The Consumer Council for Water (CCWater) is pleased with Anglian Water’s plans to put extra investment into improving services for its customers.

The water company has today (Friday) announced it is investing around an extra £70million in improving its sewer network, as well as reducing leakage and minimising the impact of future droughts on customers. This investment will come at no extra cost to customers.

The announcement comes in the wake of efforts by water watchdog CCWater to encourage water companies to share the benefits of their financial success with customers.

Bernard Crump, Central and Eastern chair for the Consumer Council for Water, said: “We are pleased by this extra investment as it shows a willingness by Anglian Water to reward customers and not just shareholders. This is something we have been urging water companies across the country to do and we are glad Anglian has reacted so positively.”
