Water sector – UKRN Performance scorecard

Following the proposal in the Modernising Consumer Markets Green Paper, published in April 2018, Ofgem, Ofcom, Ofwat, the Consumer Council for Water and the Financial Conduct Authority, through the UK Regulators Network (UKRN), have developed performance scorecards that capture how well the largest suppliers are delivering in key areas such as service quality and satisfaction levels.

The water sector performance scorecard, developed by Ofwat and the Consumer Council for Water, can be found as a publication on our website or on CC Water’s website.

What’s in the scorecard?

The water sector scorecard provides information about:

  • Customer satisfaction and likelihood to recommend their water or sewerage supplier;
  • The volume of customer complaints; and
  • Customer perception of whether they receive value for money.

The data comes from the Consumer Council for Water’s Household complaints to water companies in England and Wales report and their Water Matters report.

You can find out more detailed information about the performance of water and sewerage companies on the Discover Water portal and the Consumer Council for Water company performance page.
