How Much Might You Save?
This means that the average household will see their water bill fall from £443 (the average figure from 2019/2020) to just £420 in 2020.
Louise Beardmore, customer services director at United Utilities explained “We never forget that while it’s our job to deliver an essential public service to our customers, we also have to deliver great value for money.
“We might be cutting bills but we certainly won’t be compromising on service. We’ll still deliver clean water straight to your home and take away all the wastewater – all for less than half a pence a litre and that’s without a single plastic bottle in sight.
“With half of the UK’s most deprived towns here in the North West we know how important it is to keep our bills affordable. We are always here to listen and talk to our customers, so if anyone has money worries when their bill lands we would urge them to get in touch.”
Ambitious Plans for the Future in the North West
Over seven million homes in the North West rely on United Utilities to manage their water and wastewater throughout the year. The company hopes that water bills will be cut further to reach a price cut of 10.5% by 2025. As part of an ambitious 5 year plan, agreed with OFWAT, the water regulation authority, £3 billion will also be invested in improving the water and wastewater network in the North West.
