Northern Ireland Water is a Government Owned Company (GoCo), set up in April 2007 to provide the water and sewerage services in Northern Ireland. NI Water supply 560 million litres of clean water a day for almost 1.8 million people as well as treating 320 million litres of wastewater a day. That’s a lot of water! In order to deliver this service they require a huge system of pipes, pumping stations, water and wastewater treatment works and reservoirs. There are 26,700 kilometres of watermains and 15,200 kilometres of sewers in Northern Ireland. Though most of the time this system works well, NI Water are planning a lot of investment over the next few years to ensure that they protect public health and the environment for generations to come. By 2020 they are planning to invest £3 billion that will reduce leakage levels, lower the threats of flooding and improve water and wastewater quality.
