About us

About Anglian Water

Anglian Water supplies water and wastewater services to almost seven million customers in the East of England and Hartlepool, employing around 5,000 people in the region.

As a purpose-led business, we recognise we have a huge opportunity and responsibility to contribute to the environmental and social wellbeing of the communities we serve. As one of the largest energy users in the East of England, we are also committed to becoming a net zero carbon business by 2030.

Anglian Water is investing heavily today to help prepare for tomorrow. We continue to lead the water sector in tackling leakage, exceeding our regulatory targets for over 10 years running.

Work is already underway on a half-billion-pound investment to lay hundreds of kilometres of new, interconnecting pipes to bring water from the wettest areas in the north of Lincolnshire to the drier areas in the south and east of our region. We are also installing over one million smart meters in customer homes, and delivering a multitude of abstraction reduction programmes, protecting precious chalk streams and rivers.

About Cambridge Water

Cambridge Water is a water only company supplying high-quality drinking water to around 351,000 people in and around the city of Cambridge. Our operating area extends from Ramsey in the north to beyond Melbourn in the south, and from Gamlingay in the west to the east of Cambridge city.

We have provided an essential service to customers since 1853, when we were founded in the interests of public welfare to supply clean water. Our small size and strong local focus mean we are firmly embedded in the communities we serve.

As well as putting customers’ needs at the heart of all our decision-making, we actively work in partnership with our local communities. We also act as the guardians of our assets, building resilience with regular investment. And we run an efficient business that is in everyone’s interests.

We are currently delivering our largest-ever investment programme. Over the five years between 2020 and 2025 we are investing £600 million in services that are important for our customers and communities, while at the same time protecting and enhancing the environment that we all rely on and enjoy.
