Greater Manchester

As more and more people and businesses locate to the area we need to provide essential services to meet both current and future demands. Which is why we're investing so much in Greater Manchester.

Our projects are looking at ways to improve how we get clean water to, and then wastewater from, your homes and businesses. As part of that, we're working on improving the quality of rivers and watercourses in the region, including investing £200 million to improve Davyhulme, Oldham and Royton Wastewater Treatment Works, and laying new pipelines. We're also throwing ourselves (not literally!) into improving the water quality in the Manchester Ship Canal, the River Irwell, River Irk and the River Croal. So it's good news for the people - and the fish - of Greater Manchester.

High Demand

Help to save water where you can

We’re all enjoying the hot weather but with more of us at home we’re seeing big increases in water demand that may lead to low water pressure in some areas. Our key workers are working around the clock pumping extra water into the network but we’re asking our customers to help save water where they can. Together we can make a big difference. 

You can help by saving water where you can, on average each person uses 142 litres per day and there are some really easy ways to save.
