Severn Trent Water Ltd was fined £2 million at the Central Criminal Court on 1 July for providing false leakage data to the industry regulator Ofwat. This follows a prosecution brought by the Serious Fraud Office earlier this year. Severn Trent Water (STW) had admitted two offences under the Water Industry Act 1991.
