Providing safe, clean water and safely recycling it back to the environment will always be our priority.
And making sure we do it in an environmentally friendly way with a smaller carbon footprint means we’re doing right by the communities we serve and the habitats and wildlife that are in and around them.
We want our customers to love the work we do and the services we provide. But our purpose demands more of us: we’re committed to making our communities and our environment flourish. Our Rutland Education Centre is based at the Anglian Water Birdwatching Centre in the village of Egleton at the western end of Rutland Water.
We make use of both the reservoir and the nature reserve in our education programmes, which are designed around water and the environment and offer a real opportunity for pupils to discover the wonders of the natural environment. Through active learning and practical investigation students are encouraged to:
respect the environment
become involved in natural history
understand why maintenance of the natural world is important to us humans
We’ve engaged with more than 19000 young people though our education programme in the last 12 months alone.
