In June 2019 we announced that the Environment Agency was investigating the company for possible permit breaches at some of our wastewater treatment works.
Today [12 February] the Agency is, as expected, presenting the charges before the court. We will be as open and transparent as possible and are committed to cooperating to ensure a speedy conclusion and resolution of the case.
The charges cover historic events alleged to have taken place between 2010 and 2015. Since he joined in 2017, Chief Executive Ian McAulay has been driving thorough internal reviews of our wastewater business and is leading a major transformation programme.
