Our plans for Cumbria

We've always had a close relationship with Cumbria’s landscape and its people. The county is integral to the well-being of the North West as it supplies around a third of the region’s water. It’s our job to make sure that this precious resource is taken from the environment in a responsible way, without affecting the area’s sensitive ecosystems and stunning scenery. 

We've been constructing a major new pipeline, water treatment works and underground reservoirs as part of our West Cumbria Water Supplies Project which is in the final stages. The new pipes and assets will help us to provide customers in West Cumbria with a more resilient water supply for generations to come. 

But, that's not all, find out more about some of our other improvement projects across the water and wastewater network in Cumbria.
