Anglian Water is putting the wheels in motion on almost half a billion pounds of investment for the coming financial year.
The funds will be ploughed into the areas customers say matter most to them after views were gathered during the company’s biggest ever public consultation, which shaped its £5billion Business Plan to 2020. These include continuing with a £60million war on leakage; providing top quality drinking water; protecting against severe weather such as drought and flooding; and tackling the impacts of climate change.
This year’s investment will be paid for by average bills of just £1.15 per day for an entire household. Bills remain lower than they were four years ago following Anglian Water’s price cuts in 2015.
This investment will also underpin great service for companies entering into the market to sell water and water recycling services to non-household customers, such as businesses, schools, prisons, churches and charities. Anglian Water has launched a new division to look after these water retailers, now that all non-household customers can chose who they buy from, following a change in the law at the start of April.
