Acting chief executive: Trevor Haslett
Pre-tax profit: £51.8m
NI Water was appointed as the sole provider water, wastewater and sewerage services in Northern Ireland. It is the government-owned company established to take over from the Water Service. It is financed by government subsidy and non-domestic charging.
The company has responsibility for providing services to almost 800,000 households on a daily basis.
Between 2009 and 2010, 622m litres of drinking water was supplied to customers every day and 338m litres of wastewater was collected on a daily basis.
NI Water has battled controversy for the past two years. In 2009, four directors were sacked after a damning report into the awarding of contracts.
In January of this year, Trevor Haslett was appointed as acting chief executive after the resignation of Laurence MacKenzie. This followed a month of crisis during which NI Water was heavily criticised for leaving thousands of homes without running water for days on end during the freezing weather.
