The 2019/20 audit of Scottish Water

A subsidiary of Scottish Water may need between £47 million and £88 million in financial support due to the impact of Covid-19 on the businesses it serves.

 Stephen Boyle, Auditor General for Scotland said:
“Scottish Water Business Stream has operated profitably since its creation. However, the Covid-19 pandemic is affecting its customers and has created financial risks. The potential need to provide ongoing financial support to Business Stream means it will be vitally important for Scottish Water to continue to monitor closely the delivery of its business plans and the performance of its subsidiaries.”
