Water treatment
and the environment

Water is a vital part of our lives and we often take it for granted. Find out how we treat your water and sewage along with our work to protect the environment.

Drinking Water

The water we supply for domestic use or food production must comply with the standards in the Northern Ireland Water Quality Regulations, which incorporate European Union standards and more stringent UK national standards.
