The United Kingdom is located on a well-watered archipelago off the northwestern coast of Europe. Its southern portions have temperate climate; northern portions are colder and more exposed to weather extremes, to the point that grazing is usually the only agricultural activity.

Water utilitiesEdit

Water utilities in the United Kingdom were privatized in 1989. Originally there were 10 companies but by 2013 only three remained: Severn Trent, United Utilities and Pennon. These firms have good cash flow, but are obligated to maintain large infrastructures which supply and distribute water.[1] Nevertheless, some investors have shown interest in acquiring them.[2]
