Northern Area Committee

Welcome to the Northern Area of the Institute of Water!

Northern Area

We cover the whole of the North of England, with the bulk of our membership from Northumbrian Water, Yorkshire Water, United Utilities and our supply partners.


We want all of our members to reach their full potential, and are dedicated to supporting their professional development through an events programme which aims to be varied, informative and fun.


Some of the highlights include our Annual Themed President’s Dinner and Annual Seminar which includes our infamous Pub Quiz.

Our Committee

We would love to hear from you if you have ideas for events, would like to find out more about becoming a member or how you can make the most of your membership.


We look forward to seeing you at an event soon!
