Ofwat proposals for sewer flooding compensation

Ofwat recommendations (37 pages, Microsoft Word) to Government for changes to the guaranteed standards scheme in relation to the compensation and assistance offered by sewerage companies in cases of sewer flooding. The proposals follow those in Ofwat's 2005 consultation and are expected to be implemented in October 2007. Further guidance on the definition of "exceptional" weather is promised.
