PINSENT MASONS WATER YEARBOOK 2011-12 PREFACE It is all but impossible in today‘s global economic gloom to distil the real shared essence of economics and politics in their impact on the market. The collapse of Lehmann Brothers in 2008 continues to cast its long shadow across all industrial sectors, the banking crisis it triggered having morphed into a sovereign debt crisis, which is itself edging the world towards yet another banking crisis. The long-speculated double-dip recession – or worse! – seems to be knocking at the door! The traditional engines of economic growth, as represented by the G7 countries, have proved effete at stimulating growth, preferring to skulk in the engine sheds. Despite all its blather, no meaningful policy actions have emerged from the EU which, refusing to abandon its single currency, remains obdurate in declining to take the necessary action to save it! Germany baulks at its role of paymaster to spendthrift upstarts and Greece lurches towards bankruptcy and default, with others in similar straits not far behind – and the US economy stubbornly refuses to grow. Here in the UK, the outlook is hardly any rosier, with the IMF downgrading our growth prospects for the third time in only twelve months. At the same time, governments and bureaucrats everywhere seem bent on hobbling business with ever more onerous and distracting red tape. Against this background - notwithstanding the chronic need for it - ―investment‖ seems like a dirty word and whereas the mills grind exceeding slow in the candyfloss world of politics, the financial markets react by the minute – or refuse to do as the bureaucrats might wish, as the case may be! In the meantime, of course, the global water industry grapples with unprecedented challenges that call for a combination of innovation, operational flexibility – and investment. The overriding challenge, however, is to meet burgeoning demand (caused by rapid urbanisation in the developing world and overall population growth) out of existing resources that are themselves threatened with the effects of climate change. In the European context, that means shifting rainfall patterns, with drier summers, wetter winters and increased risk of flooding, as well as legal obstacles in the shape of carbon emission targets and other constraints. Aquatic eco-systems and water resources are therefore under serious threats that will test the resilience of existing water infrastructure to the limit and, at times, beyond. The impact of all this pressure on public and private investment capacity will cause many countries to modify or postpone, or even abandon altogether, scheduled major infrastructure improvements, as well as force a re-scheduling of the Millennium Development Goals yet again. Enormous faith is being reposed in the potential of science and commercial ingenuity to translate into practical technical and economic innovation as a saviour. This in an industry that, in many parts of the developed world, is notoriously unadventurous and distrusting of novelty (often for sound regulatory reasons), with a touching faith in the abiding value of the ―tried and tested‖! Corporate bureaucracies, however, tend to be by nature pessimistic because difficulty lurks in every opportunity, compromising rates of return and undermining the share price, thus pushing up the cost of capital. Climate change Much useful policy work is being, and has been, done in the UK at the levels of industry and government, which has universal application and is ahead of thinking in many other parts of the world. The UK government has identified five policy priorities that also accord with the needs of most other countries of the developed world and, where practicable, the developing world – strategic land-use planning to minimise flood risk; more effective integration of national infrastructure to ensure compatibility with currently predicted climate trends and their impact on water and energy consumption; designing and renovating the built environment to cope with exceptional weather events, while minimising water use; the sustainable management of natural resources, and more effective emergency planning based on probabilistic weather forecasting.

i Pinsent Masons Water Yearbook 2011 - 2012


Adaptation and mitigation in relation to climate change, however, are complementary, not alternatives, calling for global solutions to water resource planning which reconcile the conflicting trends of rising demand for water and finite water resources. Innovation The area of technological innovation is beyond the scope of a foreword like this, other than to acknowledge in passing its central importance to an industry facing challenges like those alluded to above. It offers the kind of step-change in operating and economic efficiency which industry planners, and accountants, dream of. Remarkable technological strides are already being made which will increasingly come on stream in the coming decades in response to the pressures of climatic, economic and social change, enabling many countries in the developing world, incidentally, to leapfrog much of the piecemeal progress that has shaped the industry and society since the Industrial Revolution. Innovation, however, operates at other levels, most notably how we do things in the industry and the way society regulates them, and here it‘s often achievable at modest or manageable investment outlays. As a society, we need a fresh approach to the management of our water resources and to address the sustainability paradigm will require a more integrated approach to the entire water cycle, including the use and treatment of raw and used water. The conflicting pressures on the resource element, both in the UK and worldwide, call for radical resource planning that is sustainable in economic, political and environmental terms, while exploiting the energy and waste potential of the industry and adapting to multiple water sources – municipal supply, greywater re-use and rainwater harvesting – for domestic, industrial and agricultural users. Planners and policymakers the world over are preoccupied by these issues, which will compound in the future as the impact of the insidious effects of change come to bear more acutely on social, economic and political life. In many countries, however, beset with economic upheaval, they will remain intractable well into the future. Their impact on the developed world, moreover, with its intensely urbanised regions, is likely to be even more acute, with the scale of investment they command, the physical disruption they entail and the havoc wrought by the increasingly complex planning regulation that‘s a consequence of growing environmental sensitivity! The scope for rosy optimism is scant, but for the water industry the opportunities are abundant. This, in part, is the message contained in the following pages of Pinsent Masons Water Yearbook, now in its thirteenth edition. It is yet again the outcome of the successful collaboration between Pinsent Masons, the London-based international law firm specialising in infrastructure projects and the global water industry, and Dr David Lloyd Owen of Envisager, the specialist consultancy in environmental services for the water, wastewater and renewable energy sectors, and continues to be the principal market reference work on the state of the global market, country by country, presented in searching detail. Pinsent Masons and Dr Lloyd Owen are to be congratulated for its unparalleled scope.

Perhaps this is a useful time to learn from other utilities. In the UK. given the politicians and activists who believe that water ought to be free while there is no debate about electricity being a gift from God. average water and sewerage customer bills in England and Wales fell by 0. Energy and mobile telecoms have a lot to teach us in both day to day management and the grander imperatives of policy setting. Ofgem estimates that June 2007 and June 2011. The water-energy nexus [1]: Ignorance is domestic bliss? Since water bills are so small compared to other utility services.1% and 49. People do have a habit of scrutinising their gas and electricity bills and smart metering is rapidly catching on.6% in real terms between April 2008 and April 2011 and rose by 8. 3 Pinsent Masons Water Yearbook 2011 – 2012 . In England and Wales.9% when inflation is factored in.8%.

As sludge contains recoverable energy equivalent to 130% of the energy needed to treat and dispose of it (and this may be an underestimate). A number of utilities such as Thames Water. By 2000 there were 2. By 2008. What has changed? Perhaps it is a fall in costs and a rise in opportunities. the proportion of operating costs taken up by power in fact fell from 10% to 6%. 82% of the fixed line market was shared by the two state held carriers.3 per minute in 1999 to INR1. while the shift towards urbanisation meant the proportion served in urban areas fell from 50% to 48% for water while nudging ahead from 52% to 54% for sanitation. The water-energy nexus [2]: Power costs and operating costs Rising power bills and energy demand along with more water and sewage to handle and sewage treatment standards rise is becoming a major for water and wastewater utilities. power costs accounted for 8% of the water and wastewater sector‘s operating costs in England and Wales. Competition benefited with the third and fourth network licences being awarded in 2003 and licensing systems and roaming charges liberalised from 2005. Smart metering for hot water use is at the trial stage right now and could become quite significant as time goes by. the opposite has happened for mobile communications. Population growth restricted the rise in percentage terms to 20% to 22% for water and 25% to 31% for sanitation. but by 2009-10 this had risen to 13%. for sewage treatment. USD34. By the end of 2010. The next challenge will be to extent these savings across the networks. compared with their 22% share of mobile telecom subscribers. Mobile tariffs fell from INR15. Severn Trent and Glas Cymru have gone some way towards sludge-to-energy works. this has the potential to join smart metering for hot water as an idea which has found its time.0 by 2006.0million mobile subscribers and 26. The development of mobile communications shows that stasis need not be the norm. While fixed wire remains mainly under public control. In March 2006.6billion was spent on telecommunications projects in India by the private sector between 2004 and 2008. they rose from 27% to 38% and from sewerage they rose from 14% to 24%.5million.9billion was invested as network capacity was cranked up and the average subscriber base was 302. clothes and dishes. In 2003-04. According to the World Bank. This works out at USD110 for each subscriber gained during those years or USD33 for each subscriber served during 2008 when USD9. when it came to sludge treatment and disposal. In many cases. Mobile communications [1] Lessons from India In 2000 208million people in India had water piped to their homes and 261million had improved sanitation. Looking at sewerage and sewage treatment.5million fixed wire subscribers. 4 Pinsent Masons Water Yearbook 2011 – 2012 . along with boiling water for beverages and cooking can account for more than half of a domestic electricity bill. Interestingly. heating water for washing people. the state held carriers accounted for 83% of the fixed wire subscribers. but just 12% of the mobile subscribers. and the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India has overseen the liberalisation of India‘s telecoms.PART 1: THE WORLD OF WATER 2011-12 The water—energy nexus kicks in when people realise how much domestic energy is consumed by heating water. the fixed line service had eased back to 36million by the end of 2010 while there are 63 mobile phones per 100 people. having peaked at 42million lines in 2004. Since 1997. Currently. The fall for sludge disposal reflects the start of a push into sludge to energy. 260million people had piped water and 366million improved sanitation. the proportion of direct costs accounted for by power rose from 19% to 25% during this period.

The good news may be that commentators believe that mobile communications will bring improved water and sewerage services in their wake as people newly armed with access to information and the means of communicating it are challenging government officials about their inaction. people will pay a fair price for their water if they are given a chance. with up to 10% of samples failing water quality tests in 2008-09.

Transparency International found that in 2009 70% of households with piped water and 76% with nonhousehold water treated it by boiling and disinfecting before using it. The fair value of water is recognised irrespective of circumstances. By 2008. As with paying for mobile telecoms. or USD377 being spent per new subscriber.PART 1: THE WORLD OF WATER 2011-12 Water.

HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE SERVED BY THE PRIVATE SECTOR? To gain a reasonable picture of the status of private sector participation in water and wastewater services requires a suitable set of operational assumptions that are robust enough to deal with the vagaries of the data that is currently available. populations grow within contract areas as a result of urban migration and indigenous population growth. bringing them to the public‘s attention.

How (and why) numbers served change Positive drivers: Privatisations and IPOs: Contract awards (Tianjin Capital‘s contract gains in China since 2005). as a consequence of various externalities have been excluded from the ongoing picture. as these have become a material factor over the past five years. One of the key questions over the next few years will be how to encourage companies to return to the listed equity model. although the momentum behind these proposals does appear to have eased during 2010.000 people and having a very low profile. perhaps when the Private Equity players are seeking exits in a few years time. taking up 5. 30 Pinsent Masons Water Yearbook 2011 – 2012 . This can be regarded as a contract‘s organic growth.5. The major contract exits identified have been included in a separate table. This is particularly notable in the USA. New developments within a concession area are connected to the networks. These figures are extremely difficult to quantify where urbanisation involves people moving into informal settlements as the likelihood of any connection to a formal water service (let alone sanitation) is minimal unless a specific initiative (such as at La Paz in Bolivia by Suez) has been developed by a concession holder.PART 1: THE WORLD OF WATER 2011-12 Company Kelda Northumbrian Pennon Severn Trent Southern Thames UU Wessex 2000-11 status Listed. This has been redoubled by Ofwat‘s proposals to introduce ‗vertical competition‘ into the sector. There are three quantifiable sets of data available: [1] Contract information at the time of the award [2] Published data on service extension and demand growth [3] Data about the current status of markets with a long-established private sector presence In addition. For the sake of simplicity. all contracts that have subsequently been ended whether at the end of the contract life or prematurely. where there are many privately held companies serving 150 . It is also seen in Italy and Greece. Aqua America and AWW both pursue an aggressive tuck-in acquisition strategy. this carries little weight when the equity model can be materially less efficient than the debt one under the current regulatory settlement. Service extension and population growth: Water and sewerage services are extended to people who have previously relied on water vending or informal water supplies.000-15. As a result.000 new customers each year this way. Acquisitions: The acquisition of small privately held companies by larger entities. Manila Water is an example of both. the acquisition of municipal service companies by private companies (ESSAR by Chile‘s Aguas Neuvas) or stock market flotations (COPASA‘s IPO in 2006). This is also a major driver in China as seen with Shanghai Industrial Holdings acquiring United Runtong in 2010. population growth figures have been kept to a minimum. with ACEA actively seeking to take in the small municipalities in the Rome region. privately held companies (Asia Environmental Holdings in Singapore in 2004) can be floated. taken private (Saltire) Re-listed (ex Suez) then acquired Listed Listed Taken over.

Population decrease: This will affect a number of concessions and companies in Europe in the longer term. Companies can also be sold to municipalities when a parent company changes direction as seen with Allete‘s Florida water activities. rather than the non-regulated O&M outsourcing contracts that have become a feature of the past decade). People served by contract awards. market listings to date have come about through government or municipal privatisations. Municipalities can ‗condemn‘ a regulated operator under ‗Eminent Domain‘ law and seek to buy its assets from the owner as recently seen at Pennichuck. Not all water privatisations are fated to be subsumed within other companies. Paris is also in some form of public control but the status of this change is unclear as Veolia and Suez continue to manage many aspects of these services. or judges that a contract has become inoperable (International Water in Bolivia). In many cases the service extension seen to date is a partial picture. Contracts for industrial water services or for developing industrial zones are excluded. France (the private sector share has advanced from 72% in 1987 to 79% by 2005).

meaning that by 2025. Looking closer at the numbers. 38 Pinsent Masons Water Yearbook 2011 – 2012 . 5% of the world‘s population was served to some extent by the private sector.192million. 45-55% of the urban market is potentially suitably placed for PSP. What has been consistently evident over the past years is that nothing can be taken for granted when it comes to assessing market developments and prospects. this had increased to 10% of the world‘s population. but it is not as distant as it may have seemed to have been in 1999 and it does allow for current political. What is notable is the gap between the estimation of the addressable populations in the Americas and the extent of privatisation to date.202 1. now it is the single most important global driver. an upwards adjustment of 44million on for example the forecast made in 2007. while allowing for years of contract award and implementation slippage for political and economic changes. characterised by blocked initiatives and mothballed plans.163 1.145 1. Now a market is emerging. These tables are not targets and it must be emphasised that they consider areas where PSP has the potential to offer better services in an affordable manner.085 1. In 1999. Our revised forecast for the extent of PSP in 2015 is 1. Almost all of this market is the urban market. Current and forecast extent of private sector participation It has been fascinating to observe the steady development of numbers served and a series of forecasts for PSP coverage between 1999 and 2010 that have remained in a 15-17% range. China was seen as something of interest in 1999.148 1. The forecasts for most other regions with the exception of the Americas are on the cautious side for the time being.161 1. PROSPECTS AND PROGNOSIS A new set of forecasts The addressable population is the percentage of the population (2011 estimates) that the author believes have a better than even chance of being served with PSP water and/or sewerage provision by 2015. even on a 25 or a 50 year view. especially in Moscow and St. Yet the only predictable element in the above statement is its inherent unpredictability. private sector service provision is already becoming commonplace. along with forecasts for the potential extent of private sector penetration by 2015 and 2025. 2015 forecasts (million people) Year 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 Number 1. rather than PSP for its own sake. but also the new Congress Government has made it clear that PSP is to be highlighted as a method for mobilising new resources. regulatory and market trends to be translated into realistic market developments. to 11% between 2007 and 2009 and 12% in 2010 and 13% in 2011.PART 1: THE WORLD OF WATER 2011-12 COUNTRY MARKET DEVELOPMENT. which can be related to the global domination of international markets by a number of companies from this region. it is evident that China is providing a significant proportion of the future growth while for example some African countries and the USA currently offer growth prospects somewhat below what had previously been forecast. Petersburg. The Russian Federation was seen as ‗unsuitable before perhaps 2050‘ as recently as five years ago. The potential for private sector participation Not all markets are suitable for privatisation. In Western Europe.192 % of global population 15% 15% 16% 16% 16% 16% 16% 16% The figures for privatisation to date demonstrate the variable progress that the private sector has made. Since 2006. That may once have appeared a long way off. Now not only have a number of contracts been awarded since 2002.

MOZAMBIQUE Economics (2009) GDP per capita GDP per capita (PPP) GDP in Agriculture GDP in Industry GDP in Services The National Water Plan Mozambique unveiled a National Water Development Plan in 1995. The Plan is based on reviving Mozambique‘s water provision infrastructure in the wake of the country‘s civil war – access to improved water supplies having decreased from 48% in 1980 to 35% by 1995. The Plan states: to permit services to be financially viable, the price of water has to reflect its economic value, eventually covering the cost of supply; water resources management will be decentralised to autonomous catchment authorities and water supply and sanitation services are to be decentralised to autonomous and financially self-sufficient local agencies. By 2008, urban areas had 77% access to improved water, including 20% with household connections, against 29% in rural areas (1% with household connections), with 5% of urban households being connected to the sewerage network. Urban Population 2010 (million) 2025 (million) Urbanisation in 2010 Urbanisation by 2025 The role of the state The Water Law of 1991 defines the institutional and legal framework for licensing and allocation of water concessions. Under this law, the National Water Council (CAN) provides inter-sector coordination and strategic decision making. Infrastructure development for the extension of coverage service and the corresponding investments will remain the responsibility of the state for the foreseeable future. On the other hand, management or operation of the water supply systems will, in principle, be carried out in a financially viable way and will be independent of the civil service. Urban Data Served by piped water Access to sewerage With sewage treatment Urban water and sanitation According to the Public Works and Housing Ministry in 2003, Mozambique needs more than USD1billion to meet the millennium target of reducing by half the people deprived of clean drinking water and basic sanitation by 2015. In 2006, the World Bank‘s WSP estimated that USD90million pa was needed for water and USD20million pa for sanitation between 2006 and 2015 to meet the MDG targets. Other studies noted by the World Bank point to USD3.9-5.0billion being needed by 2020 in order to reduce the country‘s vulnerability to drought and flooding. The National Statistics Institute found in 2001 that 37% of the population has access to piped water or a protected well and 50% had access to basic sanitation facilities. Of the total urban population, 35% have access to safe water supplies. In 1980 the coverage was estimated to be about 48%.

Rural water provision Sufficient water sources were constructed to increase the coverage of supply to the rural population from 6% in 1980 to 30% by 1993, 27% by 2005 and 29% in 2008, against a 2015 Millennium Development Goals target of 70%. Rural access to improved sanitation was 33% in 2005 and just 5% in 2008 according to the UN JMP. Groundwater Annual availability (1998) Per capita PSP and players In 1998, the Government announced that water provision services for Maputo, Beira, Quelimane, Nampula and Pemba would be outsourced on a lease basis for Maputo along with management contracts for the other four cities. The contract also involves the commercialisation of water services for Maputo's neighbouring industrial city of Matola and Beira's neighbouring city of Dondo. USD120million is to be invested over the first five years of the contract on upgrading facilities. The contract is linked to USD117million in donor funding, USD92million of the initial donor grant is for the service expansion programme, with the remaining USD25million for operating the services. The World Bank, African Development Bank, Dutch Government and the European Union funded the grant. The contract was awarded in September 1999 to Aguas de Mocambique (ADM), a consortium consisting of SAUR (38.5%), IPE-Aguas de Portugal (31.5%) and the Mazi-Mozambique consortium (30%). Mazi-Mozambique is led by the Mozambique Community Development Foundation, an NGO and includes local private companies Norte Investimentos, FLOTUR and MG-Mozambique Gestores. The contract grants ADM a full commercial concession in Maputo and Matola for 15 years and similar concessions in the other five cities for five years. AdeP acquired SAUR‘s stake in 2002. In 2004, as a result of the improvements in water management brought about by ADM the Government decided to expand the delegated management framework to southern cities. The watersupply systems of Inhambane, Maxixe, XaiXai, and Chokwe were integrated and delegated to Vitens. In 2006, a further expansion of delegated management contracts took place in the central region. Increased investment has led to a significant improvement in the coverage, reliability of supply, and water quality in the five cities monitored. Daily water availability has risen from about 10 hours in 2000 to 16.5 hours in 2006. Despite improvements, water losses remain a major problem, and are rising, with 50% losses in the five cities. In 2007, the OECD concluded that overall, ADM operates reasonably well and will have to concentrate efforts to reduce non-revenue water and improve customer services. Having been extended by three years in 2004, the four city contract was extended a further year before being concluded in 2008. In 2011, the Government‘s Water Supply and Investments Fund acquired AdeP‘s 73% stake in AdeM for EUR6million, including assuming EUR2.45million in debts. In 2010, AdeM made a profit of MZN33million (USD1.06million) having previously been loss making. MAJOR CITIES City Maputo Matola International finance The first World Bank water project to take place in Mozambique was given the go-ahead in February 1998. This involved a USD36million credit to assist the Government to improve water supply and sanitation in rural and urban areas. This project will lay the groundwork for an increase in the quality, coverage, and sustainability of water supply and sanitation services through new systems and encouraging PSP policies. The Mozambique National Water Development Project‘s total cost of USD56.9million will be financed by a USD36.0million IDA credit and co-financed by the Government of Mozambique and various bilateral institutions.

In June 1999, the African Development Fund (ADF) loaned USD26.44million for a water supply rehabilitation project in Maputo. This project is concentrating on water supply and sanitation systems to bring these to the unserved areas of the Hulene/Laulane/Mahotas suburbs of Maputo. The project concentrates on rehabilitation and extension works to the existing water supply system to increase the filter capacity at the water treatment, distribution and upgrading works as well as the installation of an additional water storage facility. The total cost of the project is estimated at USD31.9million. The World Bank‘s Second National Water Development Project began in 2005, having been approved in 1999. It focuses investment in the of Maputo, Beira, Quelimane, Nampula, and Pemba and seeks to promote greater private sector participation in providing.

NAMIBIA The Water Resources Management Bill was introduced in 2004, placing an obligation on the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Rural Development to ensure that safe water is available for basic human needs. With the exception of abstracting water for domestic use, the new law will introduce a comprehensive licensing system for the extraction and use of water, as well as the discharge of wastewater. A Water Regulatory Board will control water abstraction and effluent discharge pricing. Water and wastewater assets and services are relatively advanced due to the German colonial legacy and the need for active water management in an extremely arid country. Of the 533,000 people living in urban areas, 341,000 have household water connections and 75,000 are served via standpumps. 96% of the urban population has some form of sanitation, with 349,000 having access to the sewerage network. Namibia aims to have 97% urban sewerage coverage by 2010 against 60% in the 2008 UN JMP survey. Groundwater accounts for 73% of water resources. Only 3% of the country‘s rainfall is used, due to the high rate of evapotranspiration. Urban Data Served by piped water Access to sewerage With sewage treatment

While Nam Water has been commercialised, PSP has been restricted to new facilities and service extension. Nam Water has a turnover of NAD250million and an asset base of NAD1,400million, with an annual capital spending of NAD150-200million. An AA credit rating allied with cost recovery means that the entity is able to fund its current activities. The commercialisation of water supply in Namibia‘s Windhoek Municipality has been based on cost recovery for those who can and developing a system of cross subsidies for the poor via a rising block tariff system. Nam Water has adopted South Africa‘s free minimum water policy, which by 2007 had resulted in serious funding problems for 240 of the country‘s 273 municipalities.

The capital Windhoek is having its main drinking water treatment facility built and operated by Berlin Wasser International and Vivendi Environnement (now VE). The consortium will operate the water reclamation plant for 20 years. This facility is being financed by Germany‘s KfW (construction) together with the European Investment Bank (EIB). The contract generates a turnover of EUR2million pa. The 3 capacity of the plant will be 21,000m per day. This is nearly 50% of the city's total water consumption. The water supplies from the current central Namibian reservoir system and from wells have run too low. The city's long experience in the reprocessing of wastewater into industrial and drinking water could not be of any further help. 226,000 out of the city‘s 271,000 people are served by household water and sewerage. All of Windhoek‘s wastewater that is collected by the sewerage system is treated. Unaccounted for water in 2006 was 10.3%, a notably good figure. In December 2002, the NAD100million (EUR11.4million) water reclamation plant for Windhoek entered service. This is the first multiple-barrier facility in which domestic sewerage is treated to produce potable water. Raw sewerage is initially pumped into the Gammams Plant before the semi-purified water is piped to the new plant for further treatment and chlorination.

With 98% of BOD removal by 2000 (against 92% in 1990), the Netherlands has already exceeded the requirements of the Urban Wastewater Treatment directive. The country had a treatment capacity of 26million PE by 2003, but was actually using 16-17million PE at the time due to lower inputs from industry. 93% of industrial wastewater was treated in 2007. Just 2% of rivers and surface water in the Netherlands is classified as natural under the Water Framework Directive criteria, 56% being seen as artificial and 42% as heavily modified. 5% of surface waters were seen as being of good ecological quality in 2008, but the country aims to comply with the Directive and attain 100% good ecological quality by 2027. The Netherlands continues to face pollution problems in the coastal areas due to the high effluent concentrations in the rivers Rhine, Meuse and Scheldt from Belgium and Germany. For example, the river Meuse is highly polluted and is a major source of nutrient pollution. The river Scheldt is the most polluted river flowing into the North Sea.

Since 1995 there has been a ground water tax of EUR0.168 and a domestic usage tax of EUR0.136 per m³. A water supply tax of EUR0.29 per m³ is also levied on water companies, who can pass it on to customers. In addition, there are discharge related taxes. In all, these taxes raise some EUR320million pa for water projects. Total annual spending on water and wastewater in 2001 was EUR5.4billion, including EUR1billion pa by the central government for flood protection, EUR1.6billion by water boards on water and wastewater treatment (70%), water distribution (25%) and flood control (5%), and EUR0.7billion by municipalities on storm water and wastewater management.

GERMANY RWE AG RWE is the largest of the German multi-utilities. In the late 1980s, the company began to develop RWE Umwelt AG into one of Europe‘s largest waste management companies. In the mid 1990s, the company set up RWE Aqua as a subsidiary of Umwelt, to exploit the opening up of the water and wastewater markets in Germany and in central and Eastern Europe.

As a result of the September 2001 bid for American Water Works, RWE is now the third largest water utility company globally and the market leader in Germany, the UK and the USA. In 2005, RWE completed the divestment of RWE Umwelt and decided to sell its activities outside Germany and Central & Eastern Europe. A move away from water… In 2004, RWE decided to concentrate on its European and American activities and is considering the fate of its other contracts on the basis of a ―managed exit from all non-core markets‖. After a series of differing announcements on its Chilean and Spanish operations during 2005, the company formally announced in 2005 that it would divest its Thames Water and American Water Works holdings, along with its water activities outside continental Europe. In December 2006, Thames Water was sold to Kemble Water, a special purpose vehicle organised by the Macquarie European Infrastructure Fund for GBP4.8billion plus GBP3.2billion in assumed debt. The total value of the divestment of EUR11.9billion resulted in a book gain of EUR0.7billion for RWE. AWW was sold off in November 2009 after three placings following its April 2008 IPO. …save for a safe European home For the time being, RWE is retaining BWB and its other German activities, along with those directly held by the company in Central & Eastern Europe.
