Document Summary:

OFWAT (Water Regulator of England and Wales) August 2013.

 

This document provides a framework for water companies in England and Wales as they consider negotiating bulk supply agreements with other appointees. A bulk supply is a supply of water from one appointed company to another. Bulk supplies are sometimes referred to as ‘water trades’ as they are a way for water companies to trade water. Transporting the bulk supply from one company to

another company involves an ‘interconnection’, often in the form of a pipe. Companies can draw up a contract between them (a ‘bulk supply agreement’) that sets out the terms and conditions of a bulk supply, including the price. This guidance is to encourage trading between appointed water companies and promote competition.
