BMI View: The UK water sector will go from strength to strength over the coming years as modernisations
and expansion continue to improve an already robust and efficient industry. Slight problems with pollution

BMI View: In spite of the tepid economic recovery and the ongoing demands for independence from the
Catalan region, we expect overall extraction and consumption levels to fall from 2017 onwards due to the
