The water price review is an independent process led by the economic regulator, Ofwat. We are firmly committed to this principle of independence and can make no assessment on the progress of the price review.

Water companies submitted their business plans for the 2015-20 period to Ofwat in December. Nearly all are proposing flat or declining bills from 2015.

Regular updates on the price review process can be found on Ofwat's website.
