Independent Reviews

Independent Reviews play a vital part within the UK water business, and serve a variety of purposes that can include a validation of the approach to a full independent assessment for a Regulator.

We can undertake independent reviews in many areas of the water company business, including water/wastewater planning, supply-demand management, leakage economics, environmental and social impacts, risk and asset management:

  • Provide an independent view of the suitability of approach and compare with accepted best practice
  • Data validation
  • Confirmation that the stated methodology has been applied
  • Recommend improvements to methodology and/or processes within company
  • Benchmarking 

 Our clients include the data provider (to confirm the methodology has been interpreted correctly) the company Board (for assurance that the methodology has been applied) or Regulators.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements in detail.
