No matter how much investment is poured into the water sector, it is always we the consumers who ultimately pick up these costs as a result of the considerable price increases.
We must be the only country in the world which spends millions on getting our water to a potable level and then use it to wash our cars, water our gardens, and carry out general cleansing.
It beggars belief that no one has thought of using non potable water for all other uses except drinking.
This would save millions and pay to refurbish our Victorian pipelines thereby preventing the wastage through leaks.
In this country, you are never more than 47 miles (76km) from the sea. Our investment should concentrate on desalination plants to take care of the majority of our water needs.
