CUSTOMERS in Cheshire are tapping into more reliable water supplies and a reduced risk of property flooding, due to a record-breaking water investment programme.
Interim results announced by United Utilities reveal a successful start to the company’s five-year £3.6bn north west programme, which began in May.
Approximately £575m is being pumped into Cheshire between 2010-2015, to deliver a raft of new initiatives designed to improve water and sewerage services and protect the environment.
Philip Green, CEO of United Utilities, said: “We have made a good start to the new investment programme, launching a diverse range of projects which are delivering major benefits to householders and the environment, while supporting thousands of local jobs.
“Earlier this year, United Utilities completed its transformation from a business with water, electricity and gas interests into a streamlined company focused exclusively on providing water and wastewater services.”
