Provide a safe, clean and reliable water supply, dispose of your wastewater, and reduce the risk of flooding.
We are committed to providing great water to our customers by investing in assets such as the Haweswater Aqueduct and through the West Cumbria water supply project.
Disposing of wastewater is just as important, but it comes with its challenges.
Intensive rainfall is becoming a common feature of modern weather patterns, which is affecting our sewer network. It can become overwhelmed and cause sewer flooding, which is a distressing, unpleasant experience for customers, and a potential environmental risk. In response, we must adapt our sewer network and the way we manage it.
Providing clean water and removing wastewater is our major contribution to the health and wellbeing of customers and the wider public in the North West. Protecting their health is a fundamental business obligation.
Details on how we intend to invest in our water and wastewater service over the next 25 years can be found in our water resources management plan.
