Think of water and you probably think of us. We’re one of the largest regulated water companies across England and Wales. Severn Trent runs through the heart of the UK, providing essential services from the Bristol Channel to the Humber, and from Shropshire to the East Midlands. In Wales, our customers are looked after by Hafren Dyfrdwy, our new company is the teaming up of Dee Valley Water and Severn Trent and will bring wonderful water to mid and north-east Wales. The partnership combines an existing warm community approach, with the perks of being part of a wider public company.
Together we are part of Severn Trent PLC where our passion is making sure wonderful water reaches our customers and taking their waste away safely, so that they can put the kettle on or jump in the shower without thinking.
Our lives revolve around water: we need it to survive but we also cook with it, clean with it, and have fun with it! Not a day goes by where we don’t come across water. By being aware of its importance and caring for it, we can make sure there’s always enough to drink, fill a saucepan and splash about in for everyone. To fully appreciate water, you need to understand where it comes from and how it makes the journey to and from our homes.
It’s a challenge providing customers with the world’s most precious resource every day, but we’re dedicated to making sure our networks mean everyone in our regions has this amazing product on tap. We welcome the great responsibility that
comes with handling such a precious resource and so do everything in our power to make sure our wonderful water is the best it can be and that the communities we serve are aware of this.
