Ofwat published on 31 July its policy statement on climate change, itemising in particular what it has done, what it expects of water companies and what it will do and making the point that, whilst adaptation is required, this must be bases on sound science and evidence WaterUK has welcomed the publication, pointing out that the impacts of climate change will be felt first and most acutely through water.
