Our waste water services
We take our responsibility to protect Yorkshire's stunning environment very seriously so much so that we're currently spending £250 million on our waste water treatment works.
Over the next 25 years we'll be investing further to comply with a wide range of new environmental guidelines.
This includes the Water Framework Directive which is the most substantial piece of European legislation to date, requiring all inland and coastal waters to reach 'good status' by 2015.
- As part of our riverlife initiative the investment in our waste water treatment works has seen a huge improvement in the quality of the region's rivers, boosting fish and wildlife and regenerating the riversides in cities like, Leeds, Wakefield and Hull.
