Anglian Water is getting a revamp by improving its water systems.

It has invested £5 billion to reduce leakage, meet future demand for water and protect the environment.

The company appointed i20 Water – a smart water network company – to help with the improvements. They will help to upgrade the network with monitoring software, remote control and fully automatic pressure management technologies to manage demand and improve network efficiency.

Dave Ward, Head of Networks at Anglian Water, said: “Anglian Water will spend almost £5 billion in the next five years to improve water supply, protect the environment and prepare for expected population growth and climate change.”

It has committed to cut its current leakage levels by 20 million litres per day by the end of 2020. The saving could add up to almost 3.3 billion litres over the period.
