Blog #10  »  Yorkshire Water to adopt private sewage stations    (4 November, 2014)

We have received the following communication from Yorkshire Water


"Locating private sewage pumping stations for transfer to Yorkshire Water


Government legislation means that from 1st October 2016 all eligible
private sewage pumping stations in Yorkshire will automatically transfer to
our ownership and responsibility.


This is good news for customers since itll mean that they are no longer
responsible for future maintenance and repair costs associated with the
stations. The pumping stations included in the transfer will be owned by
us and will be looked after by our experienced team of operators.


We predict that there are more than 700 private pumping stations in our
region and we dont know the location of all of them.


Were starting a customer campaign this winter asking people to report
their pumping stations to us.


Wed be extremely grateful if you are able to inform the Parish Council of
these changes.


Wed also be grateful if you could help inform people and encourage them to
report their pumping stations to us as soon as possible by calling 0345 1
24 24 24."
