Water UK forecast below-inflation increase for England and Wales

According to Water UK, the average increase for water and waste water bills in England and Wales is likely to be well below inflation, with a forecasted increase of 1.7% for the coming year with inflation currently standing at 4.8% (CPIH).

Christine McGourty, CEO of Water UK said:

“Customers will continue to pay little more than £1 a day for their water and sewerage service, helping to directly fund significant investment in improving infrastructure and enhancing the environment.

“But we know this is a difficult time for many, and no-one should have to worry about their household essentials. There is a wide range of support available for those in need, and I would urge anyone who’s concerned to get in touch with their water company.”

This news comes as Scottish Water announce a 4.2% rise for households in Scotland.
