In August 2013, Ofwat granted a variation enabling Albion Water to supply water and sewerage services to 368 new household properties at a site in Thames Water’s area called Rissington. We also granted a variation enabling Albion Water to supply sewerage services to a further 370 existing household properties on the same site. On 11 November 2013, Ofwat began a consultation on a proposal to vary Albion Water’s appointment to become the water provider for 340 of the existing household properties at the site (in other words, properties which, since August 2013 were receiving sewerage services from Albion Water but not a water supply). The consultation ended on 9 December 2013. During the consultation period, we received representations from two organisations, which we considered in making our decision. On 19 December 2013, we granted Albion Water a variation to its existing appointment to enable it to supply water to these additional properties on the site. This notice gives our reasons for making this variation.
