Final determinations

In September 2018, water companies in England and Wales submitted their plans for the future to Ofwat. We checked and challenged those plans, including how much companies planned to spend to deliver them.

Our 2019 price review final determinations set out a five-year price and service package that will enable water companies to deliver more for people today, invest for future generations and at the same time operate more efficiently and reduce bills.

 

An infographic detailing the breakdown of the £51 billion five-year package
£51 billion – a five-year total package that includes: £469m to address long-term drought challenges; more than £1b to help protect from flooding; reducing pollution by 30%; improving more than 12,000km of river; helping customers cut water use by up to 13%; cutting leakage by 16%; reducing mains bursts by 12%; nearly 1.5m customers getting help with bills. At the same time, average bills will fall by 12% before inflation.
