The article reports on the concerns raised by environmental group Blueprint for Water over the huge variances in per capita consumption (PCC) estimates included in water companies' Water Resource Management Plans. According to Phil Burston of RSPB, such estimates undermined the reliability of the estimates. He argued that there was no reason for Sutton and East Surrey Water's PCC to be 200 litres per head per day.
