New 'Plan for Water'

New 'Plan for Water'

πŸ’§ Launching a new Water Restoration Fund, to channel water company fines and penalties into projects that improve the water environment.

πŸ’§ Consulting on the introduction of unlimited fines for water companies for damaging the environment.

πŸ’§ Giving regulators more powers to impose much larger penalties for polluters without needing to go to court.

πŸ’§ Accelerating Β£1.6 billion of water infrastructure investment to reduce spills from storm overflows and tackle other forms of river pollution.

πŸ’§ And much more...

This builds on our new legally binding targets to reduce pollution in our rivers, increased monitoring of storm overflows, and the largest ever environmental infrastructure investment from the water sector.
