Bournemouth Water merges with South West Water

Bournemouth Water today (1 April) transferred into South West Water. 

Operating under a single licence, the merged company will deliver the separate South West Water and Bournemouth Water 2015-20 business plans.  

The Bournemouth Water name is being retained. 

In addition, to prepare for the opening  of the non-household retail market from April 2017, a legally separate company based in Bournemouth has been created – Pennon Water Services, which operates on behalf of South West Water Business Services, Bournemouth Water Business Services, Source for Business, Aquacare and Avon Valley.
