Every day, over 50 million consumers in England and Wales receive their sewerage services from one of 10 regional companies and their water services from one of 22 companies. Since the water and sewerage industry was privatised in 1989 a regulatory framework has been in place allowing the companies to invest more than £110 billion in maintaining and improving assets and services.
