New Partnership Launched To Support Water Management

A new partnership between SEPA, the Scottish government and Scottish Water has been launched to help find new and effective ways to tackle water management, flood risk, flooding and growth that will impact infrastructure in the area.


The idea is to plan for future growth and potential changes in our climate that could have an impact on how wastewater and surface water is processed, WWT Online reports.


One area that the new collaboration will look into is how to transform how decision makers view drainage and wastewater systems, as well as how rainfall can be more effectively managed to provide growth capacity, improve water quality, manage flood risk and take climate change impacts into account.


Chief executive of Scottish Water Douglas Millican was quoted by the news source as saying: “We are developing our long-term strategies for the provision of water and wastewater services and want to continue to consult with our customers and stakeholders.


“We know there will be pressures from climate change, population growth and our ageing assets and we need to look at how to address these to ensure we continue to deliver services our customers expect. We hope this partnership will help us fully understand the long-term pressures in these areas and help develop options and solutions for the future in Edinburgh and the Lothians.”


Businesses around the UK can already make changes to how they manage their water usage by getting in touch with us here at H2O Building Services. We have more than 20 years’ experience in our industry and can help transform the way you use water so as to realise serious savings on your water bills.


We analyse your bills, past and present, carry out a site audit and put together a document that advises you on what improvements you could make to your water usage. This will help ensure that any leaks you have on site are found in a timely fashion and that your water bills are exactly as they should be, now and well into the future.


We can also serve as an intermediary between you and your water supplier, checking your bills before you receive them to make sure that they’re correct. Being able to spot water leaks early means you can repair them before they become a serious issue, costing you lots of money to fix water damage and so on.


You may also be able to claim back money on any previous water bill errors and take advantage of online water bill management, which will help save you both time and money. If you think you could benefit from this kind of service, get in touch with the team here at H2O Building Services today. We also offer water audits and a water consultancy service, so do give us a call if you’d like to find out more.
