Geeky Help Needed

Somewhere out there is a paper that looks at the relative performance of the water companies in the UK.

It’s a bit old, but it directly compares the performance of the private providers in England, the single private provider in Wales, the State owned provider in Scotland and the direct council supplied supplies in N Ireland.

I had thought it was from Ofwat but looking at their pages I can’t see it.

Anyone any ideas?

Financial or water performance? There's this group, not sure if that's what you had in mind.


Tim adds: close, but no. It waws specifically looking at the relative perfomances of the privqate, state owned and council run systems.

Try this article from The Economist. Let me know if you need login details.

The single state provider in Scotland was, IIRC until ~2002, 3 or 4 separate state providers, namely WoSW, EoSW, NoSW.

There wasn't a "South of Scotland Water", because that is basically England.

But surely, by P-G's logic, WoSW is a jv between Irish Sea (pty) Ltd and Aqua Atlantic Inc. EoSW and NoSW are operating divisions of North Sea plc.

How can these be state owned, unless someone's signed the UN Law of the Sea without telling us.
