Residents of Berkshire, Hampshire and Surrey are being offered an exclusive chance to discover the source of their drinking water.

South East Water will open up its Bray Keleher Water Treatment Works in Monkey Island Lane, Maidenhead, to the public on Saturday, September 14.

Visitors will get a chance to tour the site and learn how water is taken from the River Thames and transformed into top-quality drinking water.

They will also cast their eyes over the water company’s ongoing £22 million site expansion, which will increase its capacity by 50 per cent.

Sara Best, Regional Production Manager, said: “We’re really looking forward to welcoming the public to Bray Keleher Water Treatment Works.

“It is always fantastic to see just how much people enjoy visiting us and learning about the world of water.

“There are still plenty of free tickets up for grabs so if you’d like to come and see us, please get in touch.”

Bray Keleher currently pumps out up to 45 million litres of drinking water per day to taps in Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire.

The expansion, which is due to be complete by March 2020, will increase the capacity to up to 68 million litres daily – enough to fill more than 25 Olympic swimming pools.
