Welcome to the powwow water website. The History of powwow water details the business of providing bottled water and water coolers throughout the UK. Water coolers are as popular as ever! They are generally broken up in two categories: bottle-less and bottled water coolers.
Water is one of our most precious commodities, making up 75% of the human body and covering 71% of the Earth’s surface. However, it has been calculated that as little as 0.02% of that water is actually fresh water available for human consumption and that 50% of the world's population will face water shortages by 2025.
Each person in the UK currently uses about 150 litres of water every day; this has been rising by 1% per year since 1930. Most of the water we use is wasted, being flushed down the toilet or left to flow down the sink while we clean our teeth.
By making just a few small changes to your liquid lifestyle you will be helping to cut the demand on our most important natural resource, as well saving money on your household bills.
Water-saving wonders for the great outdoors
Nestlé Waters Powwow is a member of the UK British Water Cooler Association (BWCA) and also the European Point-of-use Drinking Water Association (EPDWA). Membership of both organisations requires us to conform to the highest standards of local and European quality and hygiene standards.
Each of our bottling centres is subject to annual inspections to ensure they meet local and European standards for bottled water. We currently hold 2 Gold Awards as a result of the excellent results from the latest independent inspections.
Our in-house team of microbiologists perform rigorous testing on a daily basis to ensure POWWOW water always reaches you in perfect condition.

The Hampshire Water Partnership was formed in 2001 and is composed of a wide range of organisations who are stakeholders in water in Hampshire.
Its main aim is to ensure the long term future of Hampshire’s rivers, aquifers and wetlands for people and wildlife. see www.hampshirewaterfestival.co.uk. The Hampshire Water Partnership was established in 1999 to foster increased understanding and knowledge-sharing about Hampshire’s water environments and the issues facing rivers, wetlands and aquifers.
It comprises private, public and voluntary bodies who have a role or interest in the sustainable management of this unique water environment. The Partnership has no executive powers, but provides a forum for closer working relationships, information dissemination, and discussion on topical issues.
