Join the debate on London's water
Members of the public and the media have been invited to attend a meeting to discuss how London's water is being managed. Tomorrow, the London Assembly's Environment Committee will discuss how the capital's water is managed with Richard Aylard, external affairs & sustainability director of Thames Water.
With the average Londoner using 167l/d of water, the committee will ask about longer-term water management plans, such as what steps are being taken to improve water efficiency in the capital’s homes and businesses, to reduce the loss of treated water from leaking pipes across the distribution network and to manage rainwater drainage, including the £4B Thames Tideway Tunnel.
Assembly Members will also question the company about its future plans, given that its proposal to increase bills for 2014/15 by about £29 on average has now been rejected by Ofwat.
The meeting will take place tomorrow (October 24) from 10am in the Chamber at City Hall.
It can also be viewed via webcast.
