The article reports on the call by Water UK chief executive Pamela Taylor for a change in the way the water sector in Great Britain is regulated to encourage water efficiency. Taylor said in a Waterwise conference in April 2009 that the industry needs a better regulatory structure rather than another set of efficiency targets. However, Waterwise executive Jacob Tompkins supported the targets as a first step.
