Flyde Water Board

Flyde Water Board

Flyde Water Board was established in 1899 following the purchase of its predecessor the Flyde Waterworks Co., with the aim of providing a piped water supply for the Flyde Coast.

Following the Water Act 1973 there was a reorganisation of water supply undertakings and the Flyde Water Board became part of the North West Water Authority. The company was privatised in 1989 and became North West Water plc. In 1995 it merged with Norweb to form United Utilities.
