What we're all about

Everyone has an idea of what a water company does. Here in Yorkshire, we make sure that all 5.2 million people living in the region have clean and safe drinking water on tap and that their waste water is taken away. But for us, it’s so much more than this.

We look after communities, protect the environment, and plan ahead to look after Yorkshire’s water, today, tomorrow, always. 24/7, 365, we provide essential water and wastewater services to every corner of the Yorkshire region, and play a key role in the region’s health, wellbeing, and prosperity.

That means over 5 million customers, and the millions of people who visit Yorkshire each year, rely on us, every day. 140,000 businesses also depend upon the water we supply and the wastewater we take away to provide goods and services that support the economy – not only in Yorkshire, but across the United Kingdom and beyond.

Here's just a few interesting facts …

We collect 1 billion litres of water every day and send it out through our 1000km’s of pipes to 5.7 million people in Yorkshire and 140,000 business to enjoy. We run over 670 water and treatment works and look after 72,000 acres of reservoirs and countryside.
