Independent water firm Castle Water has secured a contract to deliver water and wastewater services to public bodies in England.
The company did not disclose terms, but said it was a “multimillion pound” deal delivering services for up to three years to public sector facilities in areas including Yorkshire, Merseyside and Greater Manchester.
The Crown Commercial Service, which awarded the contract, hopes to eventually cut public sector water bills by £20m per annum via its water framework agreement.
Castle Water bought the business customers of Thames Water and Portsmouth Water in 2016 to become a major player in the business water retail market.
