How Real Is the Thames Water Crisis?

11 Jul 2023  |  Episode #74  |  with Keith Hays

The potential collapse of Thames Water is all over the news and has raised alarm bells on many fronts. Thames Water serves approximately 15 million people across greater London. Not a small system by any comparison, and it seems to be sinking under a £14 billion debt load, thereby requiring more money.  

In this episode, Bluefield’s water experts shed some light on what has led up to this crisis and discuss best possible steps for Thames Water’s debt problem.

Bluefield co-founders Reese Tisdale and Keith Hays shed light on the state of the U.K. municipal water market, the country’s regulator Ofwat, and private players in the fully privatized utility market.
