About Severn Trent Water

We were founded in 1974 as a regional, state-owned water authority based in the Midlands and responsible for water supply management, and waste water treatment and disposal. Located in the catchment areas of two of Britain's largest rivers - the Severn and the Trent, it's from these rivers that we get our name.

In 1989, privatisation of the water industry saw the formation of Severn Trent Plc, the parent company for Severn Trent Water. As a private company, Severn Trent Water invested heavily in replacing and repairing its assets and infrastructure. As well as complying with government legislation it set its own internal standards on issues such as public health, leakage reduction and the cleanliness of rivers and other water sources in its catchment region.

The group also began to build a products and services business in the United States beginning with the acquisition of Capital Controls Company in 1990. Since that time, Severn Trent Plc has built a portfolio of companies, known as Severn Trent Services. Severn Trent Services provides water and waste water treatment and operating services to utilities, municipalities and commercial customers. 

We love bringing our wonderful water to millions of our customers every day. Which is why our teams work incredibly hard, 24 hours a day, 52 weeks a year to make sure our customers taps continue to flow and their waste water is safely taken away. We continue to invest in our people and infrastructure, so we can all keep enjoying this wonderful force of nature in our homes for generations to come.
