Water Direct appointed to new CCS framework

Water Direct has been appointed as a supplier on the new Crown Commercial Service Water, Wastewater and Ancillary Services Framework.

The new framework includes a range of services that aim to reduce water consumption and improve water supply resilience. Water Direct will be providing contingency planning services under the Lot 2, Ancillary Service 5 section, which will help to improve water supply resilience through site visits and the provision of detailed, bespoke contingency plans.

Jonathan West, managing director of Water Direct said: “We are tremendously pleased to have been awarded a place on the CCS framework alongside other industry leaders, and we are proud to be part of something that represents excellent value for the public sector”.

With over 59,000 mains bursts in the UK in the last year alone, water supply interruptions are not uncommon, and they can have a huge impact upon businesses and public sector organisations.

Through the CCS Framework, business customers will be able to access these Contingency Planning services at a preferential rate, alongside other services that may be required.
