Worshipful Company of Water Conservators

The Worshipful Company of Water Conservators is one of the Livery Companies of the City of London. In 1988, some members of the Institution of Water and Environmental Management (IWEM, chartered in 1995 so now CIWEM) decided to found the "Guild of Water Conservators"; it was recognised as a "Company" in 1994. The Company was granted Livery status by the Court of Aldermen with effect from 2000.

The Company ranks hundred-and-second in the order of precedence for Livery Companies.

The supporters of the Company's coat of arms consist of a Beaver and an Otter, each holding a shovel to recognise the part played by the UK Chapter of the American Select Society of Sanitary Sludge Shovelers in the formation of the Guild.
