Government legislation means that from 1st October 2016 all eligible
private sewage pumping stations in Yorkshire will automatically transfer
to the ownership and responsibility of Yorkshire Water.
This is good news for customers since it’ll 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
Yorkshire Water and will be looked after by their experienced team of operators.
Yorkshire Water predicts that there are more than 700 private pumping
stations in their region and they don’t know the location of all of them.
Yorkshire Water are starting a customer campaign this winter asking
people to report their pumping stations to them.
If you have a pumping station please contact Yorkshire Water as soon as possible by calling
0345 124 24 24.
