Abstract
First paragraph: Scottish Water is a public corporation1 responsible for delivering water and sewerage services in Scotland. It was created in 2002 under the Water Industry Act (Scotland), which amalgamated the three water boards2 who were previously responsible for delivering water services in the North, East and West of Scotland.
