Gas and Water –
Gas and Water Utilities are essential services that play a vital role in the economic and social development of a country. They are sometimes considered to be Public Services. Governments are responsible for ensuring reliable and universal access to these services under accountable regulatory frameworks. They have a responsibility to provide clean water to homes and businesses and to treat wastewater. They also have a responsibility to maintain the safety of the gas distribution network. Many utility companies now prefer to use plastic pipes for the infrastructure as they have proven to be more reliable and cost effective in the long term.
