Permanent disconnection

No longer need an existing water supply to your property? No problem – we’ll arrange the disconnection for you.

Yorkshire Water colleagues

We’ll disconnect your supply from our water main in the public road free of charge. This is a permanent disconnection that’s done if you’re demolishing a property, for example. If you later need to restore the water supply, you’ll have to apply and pay for a new water connection.

If you only need the water supply to be temporarily turned off, or you’re unsure if you need a permanent disconnection, please call our contact centre.

Once you’ve booked the work in with our delivery team, they’ll normally be able to disconnect your supply within 28 days, but bear in mind that it could take longer if the work is on a busy road.
