Regulating Water & Wastewater



The provision of drinking water supply and urban wastewater services are characterised by the presence of several market failures. These services can be described as geographically local natural monopolies with scale, scope and density economies. Moreover, the existence of both negative and positive externalities, the very long infrastructure life cycle, whose costs are effectively sunk, and the quasi-public good characteristics are some of the failures whose corrections can enhance social welfare

Traditionally, since these services have been typically provided by public utilities at the municipal, regional or national level, it was assumed that these concerns would be “naturally” internalized in decision making, giving rise to the term “self-regulation”. However, in water utilities other network industries, even in the absence of private sector participation, the potential meri​​ts of sector-specific regulators are increasingly being recognised.
