Levels of Service


We are now publishing our performance against levels of service targets for a broad range of developer services activities which are essential for housing development and other construction projects.

Water UK produced a set of standards that developers and others can expect from water companies in relation to the provision of infrastructure.  These are a development of draft standards originally published as part of the government guide Better Connected: A practical guide to utilities for home builders.

Since July 2015 Water UK has been reporting on levels of services achieved.

The chart below will be updated on a quarterly basis to show how we are performing.
