This report will give you fast, easy access to robust information from analysis and critical recommendations – so you can make the right decisions, at the right time. It will challenge routine thinking by providing you with fresh, new perspectives that energize your thought process.
Using primary research and multiple secondary data sources only a Mintel report will provide you with the complete picture.
Reference is made in this report to certain categories of expenditure, which are detailed below:
Sewerage capital expenditure refers to:
New development, which is the provision of sewerage assets to accommodate increased usage of water, (and hence drainage systems), by existing customers and to provide for new customers.
Flooding from sewers, which covers expenditure on the preservation and replacement of sewers to reduce the incidence of flooding to target levels.
Storm overflows, which covers work on storm overflows to meet consents including other programmed work on river overflows to meet other objectives, (such as river quality objectives).
Sewer rehabilitation, which covers the replacement and preservation of sewers to maintain acceptable asset conditions which is not included above.
Pumping station rehabilitation, which covers the replacement and preservation of sewage pumping stations to maintain acceptable asset conditions which is not included above.
Sewage treatment capital expenditure covers the following:
New development, which is the provision of sewage treatment assets to accommodate increased usage from existing customers, and to provide for new customers.
COPA 11 covering improvement of treatment works performance to comply with consent conditions of the Control of Pollution Act 1974.
Long term river quality objectives, which refers to the improvement of treatment works performance, so that effluent complies with long term river quality objectives.
Long term estuarial quality objectives, which refers to the improvement of treatment works performance, so that effluent complies with long term estuarial quality objectives.
Sludge disposal, which refers to works to improve the sludge treatment standards in line with EC Sludge Directive.
Bathing beaches, which refers to works to ensure compliance with the EC Bathing Waters Directive at currently designated beaches.
Other sea outfalls, which refers to work on sea outfalls not included above to meet discharge consents.
Sewage works refurbishment, which refers to the replacement and preservation of treatment works assets to maintain asset condition performance.
Throughout this report the term capital expenditure refers to gross expenditure rather than investment which is more often quoted by individual companies. The report is based on the acquisition of tangible fixed assets, and for this reason, investment is segmented into the following:
For the Water and sewerage industry, the definitions of each area of expenditure is as follows:
Process plant: plant and machinery
Civil engineering: land and buildings, infra-structure and assets, such as water mains, sewers, impounding and raw water storage, reservoirs, dams and sea outfalls, specialised operational properties and structures including intake works, pumping stations, treatment works and bore holes.
Building: assets in the course of consumption
Other: fixtures and equipment, vehicles and mobile plant and other non-operational activities
Some other industry specific definitions:
Population equivalent: Population equivalent (in waste water monitoring and treatment) refers to the amount of oxygen-demanding substances whose oxygen consumption during biodegradation equals the average oxygen demand of the waste water produced by one person. For practical calculations, it is assumed that one unit equals 54 grams of BOD per 24 hours.
Some figures may not add due to rounding.
