If you do not have water Please check with your neighbours to see if they have water. If they still do, it is likely that it is only your supply that is affected in some way and could be caused by frozen pipework. If you feel this is not the case, then please contact our emergency…Read More
Giving people time and space to think is always a difficult ask in an increasingly busy world. But I think it is vital to a business performing well. We tend to want constant results, to be always delivering something. But we can only deliver better results if we continue to think differently and expand what…Read More
Our most important asset is raw water. Good quality raw water makes it easier and cheaper for us to provide good quality drinking water to our customers. Back in 2007, Bristol Water had the perhaps dubious accolade of being the first water company to detect metaldehyde in raw water. This prompted the rest of the…Read More

This is a blog about innovation in the water industry. This blog can relate to any industry in the world but I care about water. A multi-million pound industry, a public service, a regulated industry. So I start it with a quote from a book by Andrea Beaty; “Strapped into the cockpit, she flipped on…Read More
I was listening to Adam Buxton interviewing Diane Morgan, not your usual place for work advice, and I don’t think they were planning on helping someone working in the utilities sector, but they did. When asked about how she writes, she’s a comedian and an actress in case you didn’t know, she responded with “I…Read More
