British Water

I don't know the name of any of the companies or the old one, but a friend from there writes about the situation frequently. Privatization means that water and sewage services are now profit centers. Various types of plants were built to last in the old days. Now, everything is flimsy, and it breaks all the time. Extra money is put into golf courses and real estate developments instead of infrastructure. Although it rains nearly every day throughout Britain, they have water shortages, and even more incredibly, "The wrong sort of rain."
