Living with less water

So, over the past week, I have been living with less water than the average Brit. Why? Mainly because I don’t keep my mouth shut when silly ideas come to me, and I end up having to tell people how many times I go to the toilet each day. Anyway, I’ve been undertaking Bristol Water’s…

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.

What is a ‘rezone’?

What do we mean by “rezoning”? When we get reports of customers with no water our first thought is “how do we get the water back on” rather than how do we fix the burst main. When there has been a burst main that is causing people to be without water the majority of the…

Why do water mains burst more during winter months?

During winter months we see a lot more burst mains and leaks on our network. In the last five years we have spent £220 million renovating and replacing mains to reduce interruptions to supply. But we can’t replace the whole network at once, so it is likely that during the colder months we will see…
