United Utilities





What we do ...

We operate in the North West, supplying 1.7 billion litres a day of water - sourced from reservoirs, lakes, boreholes and streams - treated and cleaned to our customers. We are also responsible for collecting and cleaning wastewater from over 3 million households and 200,000 businesses in the region, aiming to provide a service that is efficient and un-intrusive.

Environmentally, we own and manage over 56,000 hectares of catchment land immediately surrounding our reservoirs, contribute to the management of around 7,000 km of rivers and over 30 beaches designated for swimming and paddling, as well as looking after over 400 km of coastline across our region.
