The article argues that British water companies should be required to buy-in bulk supplies. It says that this move is more economic efficient since a number of regions in Great Britain have already encountered a lot of water-related products. According to Severn Trent strategy and regulation director Tony Ballance, it is best to trade water between regions so that the resources will be developed in the most sustainable way possible.
