Scottish Water is always serving Scotland, providing vital services to 2.4 million households and about

159,000 businesses. Our ambition is to be Scotland’s most valued and trusted business, one that we can all be proud of. We are always striving to deliver a positive

experience, increasing service levels and value for money for our customers, and believe this is even more important in the current economic conditions. We are continuing to invest across Scotland

and, at the same time, have kept customer charges low. In 2013/14, for the second year running, the average household charge in Scotland is the lowest in Great Britain – £54 less than England and Wales. The quality of our drinking water is at an all-time high and our investment is continuing to deliver the benefits Scotland needs while supporting thousands of construction jobs. Every day we provide 1.3 billion litres of clean,

safe and high-quality drinking water to our customers’ taps via a network of more than 29,000 miles of pipes and treat their waste water, before returning it to Scotland’s natural environment. We are working hard to ensure that protection

of this precious natural resource is always a key consideration in our wide variety of operations. This is part of our commitment to become a sustainable, low carbon business. We are committed to acting responsibly in how

we deliver our services and to making the right choice in terms of service, cost and carbon. We believe that this is the right thing for our customers, the economy and the environment.
