The Water Industry Team of Scottish Government, the single owner of Scottish Water, has joined APE as a new member.
Scottish Water is the public operator providing water and sanitation services to around 5,5 million Scots.
Thanks to a series of reforms implemented during the last decade, Scottish Water has succeeded in significantly improving its performance (in terms of environmental incidents decrease and other relevant indicators), while reducing its service costs and increasing its investment capacity (for further information, you may check the presentation provided by a representative of Scottish Government during the APE seminar on "setting the right price"). APE thus enlarges its membership with an important actor, who is strongly involved in the international water policy debate.
APE warmly welcomes Scotland and looks forward to its participation in the network’s activities.
