We provide water to 319,000 people living in an area of 730 square kilometres around the city of Cambridge. This extends to Ramsey in the north, Gamlingay in the west, Balsham in the east and Melbourn in the south.

Cambridge Water was also formed in 1853 and supplies high-quality underground water that is pumped from boreholes in chalk aquifers.

We do not provide wastewater services, but bill customers on behalf of Anglian Water.

South Staffs Water
Following our merger in April 2013, we also provide water in the South Staffs region. South Staffordshire Water was formed in 1853 to provide water to inhabitants of the Black Country. 

Today, South Staffs Water supplies water to 1.3 million people and covers an area of 1490 square kilometres, which includes Walsall, Sandwell, Dudley, Tamworth, Uttoxeter, Burton, Lichfield, Sutton Coldfield and Cannock.

The company does not provide wastewater services, but bills customers on behalf of Severn Trent Water.

Both businesses now operate under a single water licence.
