Storm overflow spend to top £9bn over PR24

The total investment will top £9 billion with several companies expecting to beat government targets. United Utilities (UU) and Yorkshire Water will make the largest investments in PR24 at £3.1 billion and £1.9 billion respectively due to UU having more combined sewers than most other water companies, coupled with higher-than-average rainfall.
