CEPA undertook a targeted review in early 2016 with the aim of helping Ofwat consider the extent to which sludge and water resource cost and revenue data is robust and comparable across the ten water and sewerage companies (WaSCs). Ofwat has since published CEPA’s report (link) and launched a consultation on regulatory reporting for the 2016-17 reporting year based on our recommendations (link). The findings were also presented and discussed at Water resources and Sludge working groups hosted by Ofwat and attended by company representatives. Ofwat has also sought to repeat CEPA’s work for water-only companies (WoCs), and have recently published their results (link).
