Water quality

Drinking water - public supplies

Water authorities are responsible for the public water supply. There are two water authorities that provide water to Central Bedfordshire residents - Anglian Water and Affinity Water. The vast majority of properties in Central Bedfordshire receive their water from one of these two water authorities.

The water authorities regularly carry out tests to ensure that the public water supply meets the required standards. We obtain copies of these test results,  and they are available through the water authorities website.

You can check the water quality by doing a post code search below:

If you suspect that there is a problem with your public supply, you should first contact your water supplier for them to investigate.
