About us


Who Needs a Golden Ticket?

April 2017 marks a decade of delivery for NI Water, and to acknowledge the role the company plays in Northern Ireland, we’re throwing open the doors of some of our most important local sites to show the public what we do and how we do it!

We want to invite people to step inside their imagination and join us to see how we clean 560 million litres of water every single day, or discover how we safely treat and clean 330 million litres of wastewater by coming along to our site open days for a tour!

Many of our water and wastewater sites right across Northern Ireland will be open during a period between late March and early May 2017, and we’re keen that the public comes inside and discovers for themselves the sheer scale of their water and wastewater services.

Tours at each site will be at 10am and 2pm on the dates advertised – as these are all working sites, high visibility clothing will be provided, but trousers and flat, sensible shoes should be worn – no heels.

All tours are completely free of charge.

Sara Venning, NI Water’s Chief Executive, says: “The services NI Water provides are at the very core of the economy, health and environment of Northern Ireland.  We are proud to share this with the community and show them how they also have a role to play in the work we do, by conserving water and respecting the environment.  I would also like to thank the NI Water staff for their enthusiasm and commitment to the work that they do.  Our people are talented, dedicated, and at the heart of the communities they serve. 

“After ten years operating as NI Water, it is a good time to reflect on the role the company plays in the community.   As a company we are guardians of the networks and assets, but each and every one of us uses the service.  Only together, as a company and a community, can we continue to safeguard the environment and protect our most valuable and precious asset – water.”
