Waste water and sewerage

We don't just supply Yorkshire's homes with clean water, we also take it away. 

We've around 20,000 miles of sewer pipes across Yorkshire shifting used water and sewage from nearly 2 million homes to over 600 waste water treatment works, where it is processed to meet strict environmental standards. 

This section is all about our waste water services and what steps we're taking to prevent flooding and make Yorkshire a cleaner, healthier and more enjoyable place to live.
