Severn Trent response to Institute of Civil Engineers

“We do not agree with the idea that universal metering will solve drought issues. Whilst metering is a good way for our customers to only pay for the water they use, it’s more important for us to help our customers understand why it is important to use water wisely.

“Customers in our region are very water conscious, with the lowest consumption per head in the UK. Our year-round message remains the same – continue to use water wisely as part of your everyday life. You will also save money on your water and energy bills.”
