Where Essex Gets Water From

Did you know that Essex, even though it stretches to the coast, is the driest county in England?

Roughly 95% of the water used comes from rivers and is pumped through the 110 reservoirs dotted around the county. Hanningfield is the main reservoir in Essex, but when demand is high, it’s common for water to be sourced from Abberton in Suffolk.

With changes in weather, a warning like those given out in 2018 are going to become more common, and because the county uses water from rivers over rainfall, being able to have continuous access to water is vital to many businesses.

With our knowledge of the local water network, we can help businesses take control of their bills and usage. We aim to lower bills through smart meter readings that are automated rather than the old approach of estimated readings.

By carrying out water audits and seeing if effluent services can be improved, businesses can see bills go down over time simply by having a smart approach to water management.

If there are ways in which your business can improve how it handles water, we will find it.
