PN 07/18: Ofwat statement on Southern Water investigation


Ofwat has opened an investigation to consider whether Southern Water has breached its statutory duties and licence obligations, which fall under our remit to enforce. The investigation will look at the performance of its wastewater treatment sites and the company’s reporting of relevant compliance information to us.

We have informed the company and are in the process of gathering and reviewing information as part of our investigation.

We will conclude the investigation as quickly as we can to establish whether or not there has been any contravention and whether we need to take any enforcement action. We will not be providing any further comment on the investigation at this time.
