The company originally established to provide water to the city, "St. Petersburg Water Pipelines Joint Stock Company", was founded in 1858. The area supplied by this company (to the south of the Neva) is marked on the map as the "Old Waterworks District". In 1873 a new municipal company was formed, managed by English contractors, and the service expanded to include the areas immediately to the north of the Neva. The organisation is still in existance and goes by the name of "Vodokanal St. Petersburg".
