English Water Companies Challenged By Government To Accelerate Investment


The chief executives of fifteen water companies met today (8 September) with Environment Minister Rebecca Pow, who challenged them to do more to protect the environment and safeguard our water supplies. The meeting follows the joint letter sent to water companies in July, encouraging them to accelerate investment as part of the country’s green economic recovery from coronavirus. While water companies had coped well under increased pressure during lockdown, Minister Pow made clear that much stronger action was needed on environmental priorities.
