Affinity Water is continuing to support vulnerable customers through its WaterSure Scheme for high water users and over 45,000 customers have signed up to its Low Income Tariff.

 

The company is continuing its £500m programme of investment in infrastructure between 2015 and 2020, reducing leakage, offering free water saving devices and water saving advice.

 

Amanda Reynolds, Director of Customer Relations said: “We are pleased to continue to reduce average household bills before inflation for another year to make sure that we offer our customers value for money and keep their bills as low as we can.

 

“Over 45,000 customers have signed up to our Low Income Tariff and our WaterSure Scheme is available to protect customers in vulnerable situations.

 

“Our Water Saving Programme is helping us to reduce leakage and assist our customers to become more water efficient. We have delivered over 59,000 free Home Water Efficiency Checks in customers’ homes since we launched these in 2015 and we provided over 55,000 free water efficiency devices last year.”

 

The company is aiming to reduce leakage across its 10,600 mile network by 14% between 2015-2020, which will save more than 27 million litres per day.

 

Customers with difficulties in paying bills can apply for assistance under the company’s Low Income Fixed Social tariff or the industry wide WaterSure scheme for metered customers. Further details on both schemes are available on the company website: www.affinitywater.co.uk/lowincome
