This research identifies a series of questions that need to be answered in order to devise an environmentally effective and socially acceptable water-metering strategy for the UK. The study provides a detailed review of the available options at each stage. By means of a case study for the Severn Trent water company area, it is shown that the environmental and social consequences of metering are critically sensitive to the design of the measured tariff structure.
