LOCOG has secured Thames Water as a tier three sponsor of London 2012, becoming Official Water Utility Services Provider of the Games. Thames Water will provide all water utility and waste water services at London 2012 venues, ensuring clean, reliable tap water and sanitation to the Games.

"We are thrilled to welcome Thames Water to the London 2012 sponsorship family, their expertise and attention to detail will ensure our venues are not just operational at Games time but are world class theatres for spectators to see athletes from across the globe compete at the greatest show on earth," LOCOG Commercial Director Chris Townsend said.

It is fitting that as the UK’s biggest water utility company we should provide our essential service to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games," Martin Baggs, Chief Executive of Thames Water said. "Water is a precious resource, which we must use wisely – and we are glad London 2012 recognises this as it plans to deliver a sustainable Games."
