LONDON, Nov. 26, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Businessinfo has announced the addition of "Water and Wastewater Utilities of the World 2004" report to its on-line store.

The water and waste sector is the fastest growing utility sector, currently going through a period of unprecedented change, development and consolidation. The drivers are quite different in the developed and developing world - in the industrialised world the environmental industry is driven by past underinvestment, coinciding with a spate of environmental legislation. Many of these countries have infrastructures over a hundred years old. Whilst in the developing countries the imperative is more basic, it is to provide safe water and sanitation for nearly 2-1/2 billion people who do not have any service at all and who are multiplying by 80 million every year.

This new report, offered by businessinfo.ws, shows how the investment requirement is enormous and will grow even bigger. The demands on the water companies are heavy and will intensify. The report provides comprehensive information and analysis of every country's WSS industry and about almost 1,900 utilities supplying water and waste services.
