We manage the collection, treatment and distribution of water in Yorkshire, supplying around 1.24 billion litres of drinking water each day – that’s a lot of water.
At the same time we also collect, treat and dispose of about one billion litres of waste water safely back into the environment.
To do this we operate more than 700 water and sewage treatment works and 120 reservoirs. We look after 62,000 miles of water and sewerage mains – enough pipework to circulate the earth!
Our job is to keep the pipes in good working order and continually improve them. We’re currently spending around £750 per household to maintain and upgrade our pipes and works to reduce the risk of bursts, low water pressure, incidents of discolouration, sewer flooding and odour problems – click here to read about our investment plan .
We use water from reservoirs, rivers and boreholes and have a unique water grid system which allows us to move water around Yorkshire to where it’s needed most.
Our vision is “Taking responsibility for the water environment for good”. This is to create a common vision that covers all that we do across the whole of the Kelda Group.
