who we help
The LSIDB &
water & energy companies
The LSIDB provides vital flood risk management and drainage consulting and maintenance for water/ water treatment and energy companies. Network-critical assets within our drainage boundary include Nuclear Power and gas-fired power generation facilities, renewable power generation and National Grid infrastructure.
A water treatment plant at Purton draws freshwater from the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal and the River Frome which, when treated, supplies around half of Bristol with drinking water.
Both Severn Trent and Wessex Water abstract water and also discharge wastewater from treatment plants into watercourses that are maintained and monitored by LSIDB.
