The consultation document sets out the findings of our Water Industry Act 1991 (WIA91) investigation into Thames Water Utilities Limited (Thames Water) and the breaches of its regulatory obligations that we have found. It includes a notice of Ofwat’s intention to issue Thames Water with a nominal financial penalty of £1 under section 22A(1) WIA91 in light of Thames Water’s offer of undertakings to address its contraventions, including a compensation package totalling £11.1 million.
As required by section 22A(4) WIA91, Ofwat is publishing this notice to allow representations to be made on our proposed penalty. We will make our final decision on this having considered any representations we receive.
