About This Company

The Metropolitan Water Board was founded in 1903 to bring the nine private water companies supplying water to London under a single public body. The members of the board were nominated by the various local authorities within its area of supply. A Royal Commission had reported in 1899 on the need for such controls.

The board was abolished in 1974 and control transferred to Thames Water.

The board compulsorily acquired the following water companies:

Also acquired at no cost were the water undertakings of Tottenham and Enfield Urban District Councils
