Welcome to Cholderton and District Water Company

The Cholderton and District Water Company was established by Act of Parliament in 1904 for the purpose of providing a reliable, safe and adequate supply of potable water to several parishes on the Hampshire/Wiltshire border. The company still provides the same service today.

Throughout the many changes in the water industry Cholderton has remained an independent privately owned company.
For 30 years Cholderton was the smallest of the statutory water undertakings providing a public water supply. In May 2018, folllowing representations to Ofwat, the indusry's economic regulator, Cholderton became a private supply. At the same time the Cholderton Estate Trust acquired a majority and controlling shareholding in the company

The company currently supplies over 2,100 people in an area of around 21 square kilometres through some 800 service connections. The company is a water only supplier.

20% of the land area covered by the water company's distribution network is occupied by the Cholderton Estate which retains its close links to the water company. The estate, which is fully organic, owns and manages the land occupied by the water company.
