EA publishes report on Evidence Base

25 July 2012

Waterwise welcomes the Environment Agency report on the "Water Efficiency Evidence Base: Review and Enhancement", published on 13 July 2012.

The report endorses Waterwise's groundbreaking Evidence Base for Large-scale Water Efficiency, saying "The Waterwise Evidence Base Phase I and Phase II reports, published since 2008, represent the most significant available compendium of water efficiency research undertaken and related results."

Waterwise wholeheartedly agrees with the report's conclusion that "There is a need for unifying existing evidence sources, including the Waterwise Evidence Base and the UKWIR WR25 database. The Ofwat assumed water savings and uptake rate tables should be consistent with this evidence".

The suggestions on statistical rigour will prove useful in future Evidence Base work, and Waterwise is happy to take these forward in conjunction with our Steering Group.
