CCW’s statement on new leakage figures

We responded to today’s publication of the latest leakage figures from Water UK.

The figures show that water companies in England and Wales lost about 2.95 billion litres of water every day through leaky pipes – a 7 per cent reduction on the previous year.

Emma Clancy, Chief Executive, said:

“After a decade of complacency the water industry finally appears to be showing the level of urgency we’ve been demanding on leakage. Water companies must step up the pace of improvement and help consumers understand the vital importance of saving water if we’re to overcome the growing pressures on our water supplies and the environment we take it from.”
