The Talk: May ROUND UP PEOPLE MOVES 4 | MAY 2018 | WWT | www.wwtonline.co.uk Veolia launches bioresources marketplace Veolia has launched a new online trading platform for organic resources, which may prove a timely tool for wastewater utilities amid regulatory reforms to create a market for sewage sludge. Designed to save users time and money, the BioTrading website will be a sales and auction marketplace that connects buyers to the rest of the value chain and finds the best deal for their organic resource needs, recycling them into new products or green energy. Ofwat demands 'transparent' annual reports Ofwat is demanding that water companies provide "transparent" annual performance reports to reassure customers that they can trust in the current monopoly system. The regulator said water companies should provide "common information" so that they can be compared across the sector, adding: "Customers need to be confident that they are held to account." The reports should be published by July 15. Cheddar Two reservoir plans abandoned Bristol Water has scrapped plans to build a £100 million second reservoir in Cheddar, Somerset. The project had been under consideration since 2013, but Ofwat did not allow the company to begin construction during AMP6 and the water company said new population growth and climate change information meant it will not revisit the plans ahead of AMP7. "We no longer believe the reservoir is needed," Bristol Water's head of water resources and environment Patric Bulmer said.
