Water company enquiries
How can we help you?
The Consumer Council for Water is the statutory consumer body for the water sector in England and Wales.
If you are concerned about your water bill or have a complaint about your water company, first discuss it with your water company. If you remain unhappy, please contact the Consumer Council for Water, which will be able to offer further assistance and advice.
Or call 0300 034 2222 (for customers in England) / 0300 034 3333 (for customers in Wales)
Make an enquiry or complaint via the Consumer Council for Water.
If you remain dissatisfied following CCWater’s efforts to resolve your complaint, you may refer your complaint to the Water Redress Scheme (WATRS).
WATRS provides an independent, impartial adjudication service. Its purpose is to adjudicate disputes that have not been resolved through the company’s customer service teams or by referring the matter to CCWater.
You can find out more and make an application, free of charge, via the WATRS’ website at www.watrs.org.
If you wish to refer a dispute to us for determination you should submit your complaint via our online form or send a hard copy to:
Centre City Tower
7 Hill Street
We can also be reached on 0121 644 7500. We will always ask you to put your complaint in writing, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
