Firm plans to improve water and sewerage
SOUTH West Water has announced plans to improve the water and sewerage services in the region between 2015 and 2020.
There are plans to invest in Combe Martin's bathing waters to meet new European standards. The proposals could mean that £850 million is pumped into the regional economy. They will be submitted to water industry regulator Ofwat later this year.
Customers and businesses are being asked to give their feedback on the proposals by September 14.
The plans include building flood defences around key sites so during times of extreme weather, houses and businesses are protected.

Protecting bathing waters and shellfisheries from economic loss and pollution is also a priority.
Chief executive of South West Water Chris Loughlin said: "We still need to invest in our networks to maintain the achievements of the past such as reduced leakage rates, record tap water quality and transformed bathing waters."
