Our dedicated operations staff and water quality experts work around the clock to ensure that the water is safe to drink. We sample and analyse the water we supply at all stages of the process. From water treatment works, service reservoirs and customers’ taps to make sure that it meets stringent quality standards.
The Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI) regulates the quality of drinking water in England and Wales, and we forward the sample results to the DWI on a monthly basis throughout the year. Each year the DWI publishes a detailed report containing drinking water quality data and results of the audits and other checks they have carried out. This report, and other information on drinking water quality, is available on the DWI’s website.
