It's that bizarre situation where...

Similar to the Gas and Electricity industries it's that bizarre situation where OfWat threaten the water suppliers subsidies if they don't make more financial and operational efficiencies. So £100 mil, gets spent on a programme of works which realises benefits or efficiencies of nowhere near that amount, but then the regulators get to trumpet that they are doing their jobs properly.

All the while the actual pipes are still majorly leaky, no opportunities (no matter how tenuous) are missed to dump more and more raw sewerage into the rivers and seas... and "customer" bills still go up.
