Alun Cairns has hosted a reception for Welsh Water as the company celebrates 15 years as a not-for-profit organisation.
Alun Cairns tonight (June 28) hosted a reception for Welsh Water as the company celebrates 15 years as a not-for-profit organisation.
The Secretary of State for Wales told guests from the company gathered at Gwydyr House, the Wales Office headquarters in London, that the company had a “history to be proud of”.
Mr Cairns said:
"I recall being briefed on the setting-up of Glas Cymru during my time as an Assembly Member so can claim a pretty long association with the company.
"It is entirely fitting to have this special reception at Gwydyr House as it was of course a Welsh engineer - Sir Hugh Myddleton - who brought clean water to London in the 17th century.
"The company’s business model is a success story for Wales - more than £1 billion has been invested to improve the quality of waste water treatment process which has helped Wales secure 47 Blue Flags.
"I am sure it will continue for years to come as an innovative Welsh enterprise."
