Our purpose

Our purpose has been developed through engagement with our customers, our stakeholders and our employees.

"We are proud that our aims have remained the same since 1988 and that, over the last 30 years, we have evolved what they mean and how we deliver them."

Investment in our sewerage network

We've invested £55 million in the future of Bristol. Our new 6.5km pipeline will direct waste more efficiently around North Bristol to our water recycling centre in Avonmouth.

This sewer is part of our essential long-term sewerage strategy for the next 100 years which will allow for a growing population as well as ongoing and future development in Bristol and South Gloucestershire.
