Ensuring a sustainable environment
Managing water consumption
To effectively manage water consumption and achieve cost savings, Blackpool Council has become the first public sector organisation to be granted a water self-supply licence. The council buys water and wastewater service directly from the wholesaler, United Utilities, but is managing its own meter readings, administration and billing for over 120 sites across the borough. As a result, it is estimated that costs savings of up to £194,000 will be achieved over three years and with more efficient water consumption.
