Bristol Water has supplied drinking water for over 167 years, serving a population of 1.1 million people and businesses in an area of 1,000 square miles centred on Bristol. The area of supply ranges from Thornbury and Tetbury in the north to Street and Glastonbury in the south, and from Weston-super-Mare in the west to Frome in the east. Wessex Water provide sewerage services in much of our area.
The company owns three major reservoirs (Chew, Blagdon and Cheddar) and a number of boreholes as sources of raw water. But nearly half the water used in the area comes from rivers outside the area of supply including the River Severn.
Bristol Water also has a range of treatment works that feed water into a network of pumping stations, storage reservoirs and mains.
