Water utilities companies in Britain

In 1989, the water sector in England and Wales became privatized, resulting in the sale of the 10 regional water authorities, including Severn Trent, United Utilities, and Anglian Water. With more than 15 million customers, Thames Water is the largest water and wastewater company in Great Britain.

Water infrastructure in Britain

Since 2015, investment in Britain's water sector has totaled 44 billion British pounds. Water companies own hundreds of thousands of kilometers of water pipes that span the country. However, many pipes date back to the Victorian era and are prone to leakage. Because of this, billions of liters of water are lost every day. Despite this, Great Britain has one of the best water infrastructures in world.
