UKWIR’s members comprise 19 water and sewerage undertakers in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Over the last 20 years, UKWIR subscribers have contributed some £50m, with a further £30m of research coming from UKWIR collaborators, resulting in over 750 reports delivered to our members. Work is often carried out in collaboration with government departments and regulators including the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs; the Drinking Water Inspectorate and the Environment Agency. Some work is also done in collaboration with research organisations internationally.
