How is your water company spending your money? Find out at watchdog’s meeting

WATER companies in London and the South East will be asked to explain how they are spending their customers’ money at a watchdog’s public meeting later this month.

The Consumer Council for Water (CCWater) will question directors from the region’s six water companies during the meeting in London on Tuesday, 14th October.

The topics will include company structure and ownership; profit, tax and shareholder dividends, as well as details on exactly how the companies use customers’ money.

Sir Tony Redmond, London and South East Chair for CCWater, said: “This is a great opportunity for customers to hear first hand from water company directors about where the money they spend on their water and sewerage bill goes.”

“We want to see greater openness and transparency in the water industry and this is a chance for customers to get to the facts.”

The meeting will also feature a brief update on the on-going price setting process as well as a presentation on how water companies are performing on customer complaints.

It starts at 2pm in Fleetbank House, 2-6 Salisbury Square in London. To confirm your attendance please email steve.game@ccwater.org.uk
