Water that’s cleaned to the highest standard, delivered to millions of homes, and managed carefully to ensure it never runs out. It’s not an aspiration – it’s just how we do business, all day, every day. Whether it’s working with businesses or planning 50 years ahead, there’s a lot more goes into a glass of water than you think.
On a typical day Hartlepool Water supplies around 33 million litres of water to 90,000 people in the Borough of Hartlepool, including the surrounding villages of Greatham, Dalton Piercy, Elwick, Hart and Wynyard.
All our drinking water comes from underground, pumped from 19 boreholes sunk deep into the limestone rock at 11 sites. The water is blended at our 3 three water treatment works prior to supply, to ensure the required standards for drinking water are met.
