Water conservation

Access to pure potable water is one of the most precious resources for residents and businesses.


Most people look on clean potable water as a self-evident component of our daily lives. However, since problems have arisen, people realise that it is unacceptable for the safety of potable water to be threatened.

Sustainable utilisation entails ensuring that future generations can enjoy the same opportunities as current generations to utilise the resources, and confirming our commitment to that goal. Because of the responsibility the company has been entrusted with, Reykjavik Energy will protect water sources from hazards and contamination.

Reykjavík Energy’s oldest water source is in Gvendarbrunn in Heiðmörk. The water was first transported from there to the town in 1909 and Gvendarbrunn still serves the city population.

The management of water utilities is in the hands of Veitur Utilities ohf., a subsidiary of Reykjavík Energy.
