Wonderful on Tap

At the heart of your community

Coventry and Warwickshire - we're doing more for your communities

Coventry and Warwickshire, we love taking care of your wonderful water – it’s one of life’s essentials after all! But we always strive to do more than deliver water to your taps and take it away safely.

We want to make a real difference in the communities where you live, and we serve. For you, for your neighbours, for your family and friends, for us all.

With Covid restrictions and lockdowns, it’s been a tough year for everyone, but we haven’t let that stop us from making a difference! We’ve continued to support your community with our bundles of projects, such as the £1M Emergency Coronavirus Fund, that helped to give local charities a boost throughout the pandemic.

All of the community work we do aims to support local people, places and the environment. And if the last year has taught us anything, it’s the importance of being part of a community and taking care of one another.
