Water and waste water audit

Our experienced consultants will carry out a comprehensive water audit of all component charges of the bills that make up your water charges, taking into account staff populations and water facilities on site.

Our audut checks include:-

  • Surface water charges.
  • Highways drainage charges.
  • Site area charges.
  • Property drainage charges.
  • Band charges.

Even if your actual water usage is low, these additional charges can be a significant proportion of the bill, the highest component charges are levied by the following water companies:-

  • United Utilities
  • Scottish Water
  • Severn Trent Water
  • South Staffordshire Water
  • Northumbrian Water
  • Yorkshire Water

We have found numerous cases where these charges have been incorrectly levied resulting in significant savings for the client and refunds dating back up to 6 years can be obtained.

Last year our partners secured refunds of over £1.5m for many high street clients, universities, colleges and schools.

Upon completion of the in depth water audit, preliminary reports are generated on a site by site basis, the reports contain specific water and waste water accounts, brief overview of findings and recommendations for cost reduction savings.

Some occasions the reduction in costs may require an application to the relevant water supplier for a reduction in a component charge and a refund without the need for a site survey.

Fee structure

The application fee for reducing these charges and application for a refund / credit will be detailed within the water audit for client approval prior to commencing.

Savings and refunds

The target savings will be detailed within the water audit services report together with the expected refund / credit.

The water audit report may recommend a site survey is undertaken in order to identify the reason for the high water consumption. Upon completion a detailed report is sent to the client indicating areas of savings, action required to achieve those savings, cost to carry out the works required and the payback which is normally under 6 months or less.
