Aquatic Biosecurity Partnership
Invasive species cost water companies at least £7.5 million per annum, a figure expected to rise as increasing numbers of invasive species arrive in the country.
In order to limit future costs, maintain services and help protect the environment, eight water companies invested £150k per annum (2017-2020), to tackle aquatic invasive species through an enhanced Check Clean Dry work programme. The project has since been extended until 2025, with two new water companies joining the partnership.
