Short description: Introduction The Techneau project is concerned with the supply of safe drinking water from source to tap and consumers’ preferences need to be understood if new developments are to be selected and introduced effectively. This report reviews the literature on consumer preferences for water supply services and discusses these in relation to other factors such as risk perceptions. Importance The primary purpose of the report is to inform the selection of consumer issues for further study in the TECHNEAU case studies. The review will inform discussions with end users and consumer groups in the next phase of Work Area 6. Approach This is an overview of recent developments in the consumer preference literature in general but with a particular emphasis on water. Result Descriptions of models of consumer preferences in the literature. Discussion of the status of these models and general conclusions that can be drawn from them.
