Brief history of the company

The Drinking Water Company was established in 1860 as an Egyptian-French company and turned into an English company on March 29, 1879 with limited liability. It continued to operate under the English administration until March 1954, when the administration was Egyptianized under the supervision of the first Egyptian director.

In June 1958, a law was passed to convert this company from an English company with limited liability to an Egyptian joint stock company

On July 20, 1961, Law No. 117 of 1961 was issued establishing the board of directors of the nationalized company, headed by the Governor of Alexandria.

On October 10, 1965, Ministerial Resolution No. 1243 was issued assigning the technical and administrative supervision of the facilities of the drinking water stations in Abu Qir, Nubariya and Abu Homs to the Alexandria Water Company, in addition to its original specialization.

On November 30, 1968, Republican Decree 1639 of 1968 was issued to transform the Alexandria Water Company into a governmental economic body concerned with the management and exploitation of facilities and facilities attached to it, on which the Drinking Water Company was based, in addition to the Nubaria and Mariout water operations and their networks, including the Western Desert water pipeline.

On December 23, 1971, Presidential Decree No. 2420 of 1971 was issued to organize the government apparatus, and included that the authority be affiliated to Alexandria Governorate.

The Alexandria Water Authority continued to practice its activities in this situation until Presidential Decree No. 135 of 2004 was issued to transfer the water and sanitation authorities to the company and to be affiliated with the holding company in accordance with this decision.
