Example text

OFWAT does not advocate either universal metering or a crash programme of metering. Thirteen companies (out of twenty-eight) now offer free meters and installation to every customer. There are some additional costs associated with metering, and OFWAT has issued guidance as to how much of these it is reasonable to pass on to customers. Initially the government planned to end rateable-value-based charging by 2000, but this deadline has been extended. Companies in the south and east of the country, whose water resources are most short, are the most likely to adopt compulsory metering of existing properties; Anglia Water has announced plans to meter 95 per cent of households by 2014–15.

It is sponsored by the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions, with policy links to the Welsh Office and the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. It took over the functions of its predecessors, the National Rivers Authority, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Pollution, Waste Regulation Authorities, and parts of the Department of the Environment. The Environment Agency has the central role in the planning of water resources at the national and regional levels, and in co-ordinating action between water undertakings; the industry’s three regulators have the duty of ensuring that it is carried out properly.

Alternatives to metering include a flat rate, or a banding system similar to that used for Council Tax, based on the type of property. Since 1945 water suppliers have had the legal power to disconnect customers’ water supply (but not sewerage services) for non-payment of charges. This continued after privatisation, and there was much public concern about the risk to public health caused by disconnection, and unfair debt recovery procedures. OFWAT issued guidelines in 1992 to ensure companies acted consistently and fairly, and since then disconnection figures have fallen consistently.
