Water Supply for Events and Festivals

Provision of Safe Drinking Water

The great British summer isn’t complete without outdoor events such as music festivals, celebrations of arts and cultures, mass participation sporting events, and corporate fun days. Organisers of these festivals and events have a responsibility to ensure the welfare of their attendees/participants and onsite staff. These responsibilities include the provision of safe drinking water, along with other welfare uses such as providing water for toilets, hand washing, showers and catering.

Event Water Supply Systems

Many sites existing water supply and distribution systems aren’t sufficient for the high demand of an outdoor event; Watermills can deliver your complete event water supply system to supplement or replace an inadequate water supply.

Watermills has many years of experience in the provision of drinking water services, waste management, on site plumbing, and consultancy to events both large and small across the UK. We provide quality assured water supplies to numerous events and festivals accommodating 150 to 150 000 people. References are available on request from a range of clients, proving that Watermills delivers on the big stage, as well as many smaller ones!

If your site has an existing water supply, we test, and quality assure the water supplied before plumbing it into our event water supply system. Water is held in water storage tanks before being pumped around the site network.

If there is no usable water supply on your event or festival site, Watermills delivers bulk water using our own fleet of dedicated water tankers. Watermills do not sub-contract this work; all deliveries, installations and collections are handled by our team of trained and experienced drivers, technicians, engineers and plumbers. 

Why Watermills at your event?

Event organisers have the duty to provide a clean, wholesome drinking water supply at their event. They must ensure that requirements of BS8551:2015 (Provision and management of temporary water supplies and distribution networks) are met, along with the relevant Water Regulations (Water Supply, Water Quality \ Private Water Supply Regs etc.).

Watermills provide peace of mind. We will work along-side you and co-ordinate with third parties such as the local environmental health officer and water company Water Regulation Enforcement Officer, ensuring full regulatory compliance and keeping your staff and customers safe.
