  • Ultrasound is commonly used to scan expecting mothers - and bats use it to find prey. But we’re deploying ultrasonic technology to detect leaks on our water network. By placing two sensors on a pipe we can measure ultrasonic waves and work out how much water is flowing through it. Taking these readings on different sections of the pipe network means we can detect if there is water escaping. The big advantage is we don’t need to put a flowmeter inside the pipe so the sensor is mobile, versatile and there is zero risk to water quality.

    This sort of technology is increasingly important when it comes to tracking down the hardest to find leaks – and we’re always on the lookout for new techniques to help us. We already lead the UK water industry on leakage, but over the next five years we’re investing £240m in staff, data analysis and innovation to bring our leakage levels down to world beating lows.

Currently, our sector is not yet representative of the UK workforce for gender, BAME, disability, and under 24s. We will work collaboratively as a sector to drive change.

    I have been working at Anglian Water part-time (More than 10 years)


    Private healthcare
    Flexible and understanding to part timers
    Friendly and welcoming
    Genuinely care about their customers


    Not enough car parking for the amount of employees. Unable to get parked sometimes.

    Not much room for career progression but that’s more due to the fact people don’t tend to leave.
