These include the establishment of the Environment Agency; provisions of the Water Act 2003 that will reshape arrangements for regulation of the water industry and extend the responsibility of sewerage undertakers for lateral drains; and important case law on such topics as the tort liability of sewerage undertakers, the interpretation and application of relevant provisions of the Water Industry Act 1991 and the water pollution offences under the Water Resources Act 1991.
