Issues Regarding the Potential Adoption of Supply Pipes: Costs, Customer Service and Regulatory Impacts
There is potential for the adoption of supply pipes, particularly following adoption of private sewers and lateral drains. Adopted supply pipes may provide a solution for maintenance problems and facilitate an integrated and sustainable approach to network management. The future transfer of private supply pipes to water company ownership will have significant and varying impacts on all stakeholders.
This report follows previous work (04/RG/07/5) and provides further understanding of supply pipe issues by consolidating available data, quantifying the costs and benefits and considering the broad range of legal, regulatory and customer issues that will arise from adoption. Costs and benefits of alternative schemes of adoption are referenced against the current approach and considered over the long term. Sustainable management of the supply pipe asset is given particular consideration.
The report provides a spreadsheet to allow exploration of the costs and benefits assumed.
