The Water Services Corporation is the Public Entity responsible for the complete drinking and waste water cycle in the Maltese Islands. The WSC produces and distributes potable water and collects and treats the wastewater of over 250,000 households, businesses, industries, hotels, etc. serving over 420,000 people.

The WSC operates reverse osmosis, sewage treatment and polishing plants, pumping stations, reservoirs and boreholes all over the country. The Corporation is also at the forefront of leakage detection and water re-use technologies.

The Corporation is acutely aware of the importance of environmental protection. All its capital projects, such as the upgrading of the reverse osmosis plants and the building of three new wastewater treatment plants, are designed to incorporate the latest technologies that use the least resources.

It also supports initiatives that raise awareness of the need to protect The Maltese Islands' underground water resources from illegal extraction and pollution.
