Anglian Water supplies around 1.2 billion litres of high-quality drinking water every day to more than 4.2 million customers via 140 water treatment works and more than 37,000 kilometres of water mains.
The water in the west of the region comes primarily from reservoirs, which are used to store water taken from rivers. The east of the region relies mainly on natural underground reservoirs known as aquifers.
The Anglian Water region is one of the driest in the country, receiving on average only 600mm of rain a year. Because of this we:
- Have one of the lowest leakage rates in the world
- Encourage customers to use water meters to pay for the water they use
- Provide information and services to customers to help them use water wisely
- Carry out research into the best ways to use water.
