Your water supply

When you move into your new home your water supply will still be connected but you will need to notify Welsh Water that you have moved in by calling 0800 052 0145. You do have a right to have a water meter installed but you must inform the maintenance department at Newydd. Please note that a water meter may not always prove to be cost effective and it cannot be removed once it is installed.
