Cornwall's Water Bills Could Drop
11:52am 30th April 2014
Cornwall's water bills could fall by seven percent in real terms.
The regulator has approved a plan for prices up to 2020.
It will mean the average family forks out around £480 a year.
But the real drop depends on what happens with inflation.
Monica Read from South West Water tells us how they will spend the money, she said: "An enormous investment into the economy for Cornwall and Devon into areas like bathing water qualities, shellfish water, looking at what we need to do to prevent the impact of extreme weather like flooding and so on.
"We will be working in areas like Bude, Summerleaze and Par to make sure those communities have bathing waters that reach the new standards and they can go on using them as a positive message for their tourism."11:52am 30th April 2014
