Why Anglian Water?

Before it reaches our customer’s tap, drinking water is cleaned, disinfected and tested to ensure it’s safe to be consumed; after the water has been flushed and poured into our sewers, it’s delivered to our water recycling works, where it’s cleaned before it gets passed back to nature, where it’s also tested to ensure it’s not going to damage the environment.

We analyse and test hundreds of clean water and final effluent samples everyday.
