Meet the people keeping our water running

All over the UK water company personnel are working hard to keep the nation’s water running during the current COVID-19 crisis.

Whether it’s replacing pipes, repairing leaks or supporting customers to access the help they need water industry workers are at the frontline during this difficult time.

Here we meet just some of the people who are working to keep our water running.
