Investing in our infrastructure
Every year we invest millions in improving our infrastructure, so that we can continue to supply our customers with wonderful water.
We’re currently working on one of our biggest ever improvement projects for our customers in Birmingham, and for the first time in history, Birmingham will have a back-up water supply. For decades, over a million people across the city have been supplied with water from Wales through the Elan Valley Aqueduct. The aqueduct is an incredible piece of engineering created by the Victorians to bring water 70 miles from Wales to Birmingham.
After a century of use the aqueduct requires regular maintenance and repairs so we'll need to take it out of action from time to time. The new back-up supply ensure we can keep water flowing for people across the city for the next 100 years.
Your water supply and how this will affect you.
