Reality television is about to hit a new low: Sewers, and the team who keeps things flowing.
United Utilities—one of the UK’s largest water and wastewater service providers—will star in a six-part documentary series called “Watermen: A dirty business” on BBC2 starting today.
United Utilities will be tweeting along with the series using the hashtag #Watermen.

The utility even has a breakdown of the issues covered in each one-hour episode, offering more detailed information and resources for customers or any interested viewers like us.
“We’re incredibly proud of the work we do and are delighted to have a
chance to share the passion and dedication of our teams and the issues
and challenges they face on a daily basis,” United Utilities says on its website.
Bravo. As a wastewater treatment agency across the pond, we love opportunities to increase public understanding of the dirty work required for clean water.
