Yorkshire Water manages the collection, treatment and distribution of water  in the region, supplying around 1.24 billion litres of drinking water to over 5 million people every day. We have 2,500 colleagues and rely on a huge network of more than 700 treatment works, 130 reservoirs and 62,000 miles of mains to transport water around the whole county using our unique grid  system. To keep such a complex system working effectively we’ve got to constantly invest in it, that’s why between 2015 and 2020 we’ll be putting £3.8 billion back into the local economy.

But we’re more than just a water company, we’re also the second largest landowner in Yorkshire with 80,000 acres of land, and we welcome thousands of visitors to some of the most scenic spots that you’ll find anywhere in Yorkshire every year. Our company vision is “taking care of the water environment for good” and we were delighted to be awarded platinum status in the Business in the Community environment index for our work in the area.

We are continually striving to improve the efficiency of our asset investment programme and see off-site build and assembly as one of the key initiatives for now and into the future.
