Social and Environmental Guidance for Water and Sewerage Services (2021-2027)

The Guidance sets the key social and environmental priorities that the Department will expect the Utility Regulator to have regard to when carrying out its role of regulating NI Water during this period (2021 - 2027).

The Guidance will inform how water and sewerage services are provided in Northern Ireland and will also set out what NI Water will need to do to meet its environmental obligations, continue to make improvements in service delivery and work to operate sustainably, taking account of climate change.

Consultation on the guidance

The Department launched an eight week public consultation in October 2019 on the draft guidance. The document sought the views of the public on the proposed actions and way forward. These views helped inform the development of the final guidance.
