The request was partially successful.

Dear Albion Water Limited,

I would like to know:

1) Do you add fluoride to the water of your customers? If you do this in some parts of your network but not in others, do you have a map to show where fluoridation takes place?

2) If you do not currently fluoridate water, do you have any plans to introduce this?

3) If you do not currently fluoridate water, what is the average amount of naturally occurring fluoride in the water that you supply?

I look forward to your response and thank you for taking the time to answer these questions.

Yours faithfully,
Charlotte Simmons

Angela Cutler, Albion Water Limited


Thank you for your enquiry.

Albion Water is a regulated water undertaker (an ‘inset appointee’) but is not a regional water services monopoly upon which the Fish Legal Case (EIR) appeal decision ([2015]UKUT0052) was based. There are material differences to the way in which regional water companies and inset appointees are regulated which may affect consideration of ‘public authority’ status. Despite this and in the interests of transparency Albion will assist with information provision (either free of charge or following the receipt of a fee) where this has the attributes of publically accessible environmental information.

In response to your questions:

Where relevant, potable water is purchased in bulk from the regional water company, we do not own sources destined for potable usage.
