What is a NAV?

A New Appointment & Variation (NAV) is where an independent water and wastewater company replaces the local incumbent as the water and/or wastewater undertaker for a defined piece of geography within in England and Wales.

Our services include:

  • Potable water – water networks including service connections and metering, installed and adopted on time.
