The history of Water Company is closely connected to the history of Prishtina the capital city of Kosova, and the settlements around it. After the war in Kosova (1998 – 1999) the Company was subject to consolidation process respectively regionalization and currently it performs activities in all the territory of the central Kosova. Water supply in Prishtina began very early with natural resources of Germia and later from the wells in Kolevica.
Prishtina had 38.593 inhabitants in 1961. In that year Badovc accumulative Lake started being used to supply Prishtina city and the vicinity with drinking water.
