We sought views in the PR24 Draft Methodology on whether the serious pollution incidents performance commitment should be extended to include water only companies (WoCs). This is because our proposed performance commitment definition uses the definitions used by environmental regulators in their Environmental Performance Assessments (EPA). The EPAs include pollution incidents associated with water activities as well as wastewater activities for the water and sewerage companies (WaSCs). Respondents have generally suggested that if a new performance commitment is to be introduced it should be for water only companies as well.
In light of responses, we now wish to seek view on whether the discharge permit compliance performance commitment should also be extended to include WoCs.
We should be grateful for responses to this consultation by 11 November 2022. Electronic responses should be emailed to [email protected] .
