The Resilience Task and Finish Group was established by Ofwat in early 2015 and is an independent body reporting to Ofwat and seeking to influence the sector more widely. The group considered what resilience means for the wider water sector. The group aimed to answer the following questions: What is resilience in relation to the provision of water and wastewater services? What do service providers need to consider as they think about how best to provide resilient water and wastewater services? What does Ofwat need to consider as it thinks about how best to regulate the water and wastewater service providers, having regard to its statutory duties, including its new duty on resilience?
