About us

Water UK is a membership body representing the UK water industry

Our members include all water and wastewater companies across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and we have a number of associate members who provide services outside the UK.

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.

Our history

Water UK was established in 1998 to form a single voice for the water industry across the UK, bringing together the previous Water Services Association and Water Companies Association.

Our CEO, Christine McGourty, joined Water UK in December 2019.
