About us

The trade association for the water industry

Our members include all of the water and wastewater companies across Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

We work with companies to help ensure that customers receive high quality tap water at a reasonable price and that our environment is protected and improved.

We do that by understanding and promoting best practice, representing the UK water industry in discussions with government, NGOs, regulators and in international forums and encouraging innovative policies that tackle big issues.

How we are funded

We are funded directly by our members. We are an independent organisation representing the whole industry and not the interest of individual companies.
