14 March 2008 Goes Live!

A new website has been launched today to show businesses what choices they have when the water sector opens up to competition on April 1.
The site,, has been built by the regulator, the Water Industry Commission for Scotland (WICS), to promote the benefits of competition for the sector.
It includes details of the three new licensed suppliers – Satec, Business Stream and Aquavitae – and Osprey Water Services, a division of Anglian Water that are in the process of finalising a licence application. The new tool illustrates the benefits the new competitive retail structure will bring to Scottish businesses.
Alan Sutherland, WICS’ chief executive said: “The website we have launched today makes choosing a water and sewerage provider as simple as possible.
“We want every customer to benefit from real choice.  With just over two weeks to go until the change takes effect, this tool will provide the means for Scottish customers to navigate the process and get the most out of the new framework.”
