Delivering water from source to tap is a mammoth feat and over 500 Bristol Water employees make this happen!

We take water from nearly 70 different sources which range from reservoirs, rivers, springs, wells and boreholes.

We use some of the latest technology and sophisticated IT systems, to ensure our complex network (which includes 164 pumping stations and over 6,600 km's of pipe) runs smoothly 24 hours a day.
