Is the UK's current leakage performance satisfactory or could more be done?

Effective management of the UK's water resources is going to become increasingly critical, with the combined effects of climate change and a growing population set to put pressure on supplies. At the current time, the UK's underlying leakage rate is somewhere around 15-20%. Recent projections show that investment in leakage detection and management strategies is likely to be limited in the near future, with water companies restricted by the limited funding made available by the recent Ofwat determination.
Do you believe that the UK's current leakage performance is satisfactory or do you think that more should be done?
