The article focuses on successful demand management at Bornemouth & West Hampshire Water to avoid shortage in water supply. Bornemouth plans to continue its metering program as it is the most economic way of balancing supply and demand. Managing director Tony Cooke believes adequate margins for licensees and new entrants would enable competition in the water utilities sector. The company's non-regulated business will account for 25% of group turnover in 2007.
