These companies have invested more than pounds 15bn in the drinking water and sewerage systems since privatisation, to time and to budget. This investment has produced substantial improvements in the quality of drinking water, of rivers and coastal waters, as the independent regulators testify. The greater efficiencies the companies have squeezed out of their operations mean real price increases in future will be half what they were before privatisation, despite continued massive investment.
