Water Industry Commission’s Approach to the 2010-14 Price review

22nd March 2007

A response to the Water Industry Commission’s (WIC) Approach to the 2010-14 Price review consultation by the Freshwater Taskforce of Scottish Environment LINK.

We believe that it is unacceptable for the customers of Scottish Water to be paying for the cleanup of pollution caused by other activities outwith their direct control

To achieve sustainable use of water resources, particularly in the presence of climate change, the Scottish Executive must recognise that: the water is not only an economic resource, but an environmental asset; water pricing must ensure sustainable use, not only efficient use; the cost of recovery must include the costs of damage to the environment .  Water pricing is a powerful tool to bring about more sustainable water use, and help to clean up our environment.
