Water bills rise 'to pay for upgrade to services'
THE average cost of water and sewerage bills across the UK has gone up.
Regina Finn, Ofwat's chief executive, said the rise is part of a five-year £25 billion investment programme, to ensure customers get "safe and secure water".
She added: "We understand that there is huge pressure on household incomes, and any rise is unwelcome. Inflation is driving these increases.
"These rises will help pay for investment of around £1,000 for every household in England and Wales.
