Anglian Water Sets Aside GBP2.5 Billion For Climate Change

London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 22, 2009 -- Anglian Water is taking climate change so seriously that it is ready to spend $1632.5 billion to battle its effects on the region`s water and sewage infrastructure, it has been reported. The move is set to stimulate the economy by creating and securing jobs while money ploughed into protecting assets such as sewage treatment plants and pumping stations could help to safeguard nearby communities from the threat of river flooding and costal erosion, according to Business Week. A company spokesman said it was currently investigating where spending should take place and asking the relevant questions to help prepare for the future. `If we lost use of a major water treatment works, for example, how would we cope? Could we supply water via another means?` he said. `We`d want to consider building new water treatment works and laying new pipelines which could all work in parallel to existing infrastructure, should the need arise.`And in places where there is a combined sewer system (ie one which takes away foul water as well as surface water, including rain) we need to consider how we reduce the risk of waste water flooding. `The World Bank recently announced a $300 million loan to help Peru`s new Environment Ministry carry out moves that would help the country become more sustainable.
