About Us

Premier Water Solutions (PWS): award-winning independent environmental, drainage and water consultants & contractors

Premier Water Solutions Ltd is an independent, environmental, drainage, water consultancy, and open-market contracting company based in Cornwall, and has been established for 10 years.

We offer a turnkey design and installation service for domestic and trade effluent treatment plants and Drainage Systems from Avon to Cornwall.

We would be delighted to help in any way we can and are happy to advise on any sized project. Our specialism is handling complicated sites, requiring solutions “outside of the box”. Our ever-expanding portfolio of clients is primarily in the South West and ranges from private clients right up to large drink and concrete manufacturing companies and everything in between.

The company was founded in January 2008, by Louisa Inch, in Somerset. The ethos of the company is to deliver a technically sound, environmental consultancy, delivering projects on time and without charging the earth. During our pre-start-up discussions it became apparent that there was a gap in the market for a small consultancy company where the client is able to contact the project manager easily for project updates. 

Thus, we have made client contact and approachability one of our main priorities. We specialise in Flood Risk Assessments, Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems, Foul Water Design and Planning Applications.

Our Other Services:

PWS Drain Surveys

If you are thinking about buying a house which is not connected to the mains sewer, how do you know that the system is operating? Septic tanks and soakaways are traditionally used in rural villages and are knonw to fail periodically.  Once this happens it can mean expensive de-sludging (approx £130 every 2 weeks) or installing a new system which may involve purchasing third party land. We provide an in-depth technical report and DVD of the underground pipework, which includes budget costs for remedial work.

Environmental Management Systems 14001

EMS's are becoming more prevalent and, if you are planning on dealing with larger companies an EMS is now being requested to prove your company's environmental ethos and commitment to reducing energy and waste. We can now provide as much or as little support to help your company achieve the International Standard of ISO 14001. 

Our Awards and Progress so Far

Premier Water Solutions came 3rd in the Mendip “New Business of the Year” category in the Somerset Business Awards 2009.

Premier Water Solutions was awarded “highly commended” in the Environmental Business Award at the Western Gazette Yeovil Business Awards 2010. 

Llyods Bank commercial section picked Premier Water Solutions  to use as a case study to show how a business loan provided by them during the recession was used to successfully grow the business. We borrowed £10k to purchase the full suite of Micro Drainage design and drawing hydraulic modelling software to ensure that all of our sites can be assessed using the latest technology. It is generally accepted that to discharge conditions with the Environment Agency they will only now really accept calculations undertaken by this type of software.
