This summer, Anglian Water has embarked on an ambitious campaign to promote water quality in the home, aiming to prevent events which make drinking water potentially unsafe.

Over the past few years the company has been alerted to examples such as rain water harvesting systems, or solar panels, incorrectly plumbed into the drinking water system, fuel spillages near to plastic water pipes contaminating drinking water, or something as simple as harmful bacteria hiding inside a kitchen tap. It also aims to educate people on how to resolve other water worries in the home such as cloudy water, TCP and chlorine tastes and smells,and lead.

The campaign so far has reached over 730,000 people and includes a new website,leaflet, Facebook page and ‘how to’ videos on YouTube, as well as an item on BBC Look East, and articles in regional newspapers. 

Anglian Water is asking for support from any local WaterSafe and A Plus plumbers to help spread the message. Information is available on our website anglianwater.co.uk/keepwaterhealthy where the interactive house of advice, videos, leaflet and fact sheets are all within a few clicks. Anglian Water will be running open days in the new year where any plumbers and tradespeople can come along and find out more. Keep Water Healthy leaflets are also available to give out to your customers.

For more information, or to request some leaflets, please email: kwillis@anglianwater.co.uk.
