The document sets out our proposed amendments to the conditions of appointment (‘licence’) of five water companies in England and Wales (listed in table 1). The proposed amendments deal with the delivery of large infrastructure schemes through Ofwat’s Direct Procurement for Customers initiative (‘DPC’). Under section 13 of the Water Industry Act 1991 (‘WIA91’), the Water Services Regulation Authority (‘Ofwat’) may modify the conditions of a water company’s licence if the company consents to the amendments.
For the purpose of this document, a reference to a water company or company means a company holding an appointment as a water or sewerage undertaker under the Water Industry Act 1991.
