The water supplied by Severn Trent comes from a range of sources. Around two-thirds of your drinking water comes from surface water sources such as rivers and reservoirs, while the remaining third comes from groundwater sandstone aquifers in the Midlands, Nottinghamshire, and to a smaller degree limestone aquifers in the Derbyshire and Cotswolds areas. The water supplied to your home will always go through an extensive testing and treatment process no matter what its original source is.

Having metered rates means that your supplier bills you according to your homes usage. For them to be able to bill you accurately, it is important that you provide them with regular meter readings.

If your home doesn't have a water meter, then it will be billed according to its rateable value instead.
