Improving Yorkshire’s Water

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

Turning on a tap and filling the kettle seems a small part of everyday life, but as Heeley MP Meg Munn recently found out, the water coming out goes through a surprisingly intensive process before we can drink it. Meg recently went to Ewden water treatment works to see for herself just what happens to our water.


Yorkshire Water who operate the water treatment plant are inviting the public to come and take behind-the-scenes tours around a number of its clean and waste water treatment works. They want people to discover just how clean water comes out of their taps and what happens when their waste water is taken away.


To kick of the programme of tours, Ewden water treatment works near Sheffield opened its doors to customers. There is new investment being made by Yorkshire Water to improve water quality and end the discolouration which has occurred in recent years.


Meg commented after her tour:


“We all know Yorkshire’s water is the finest in the country and now I know why. It was amazing to see that something we simply take for granted goes through such an intensive scientific process before we can use it.


The processes in place and the investments being made to improve water quality and supply make our water the best in the business.”


Mark Penny, Director of Yorkshire Water’s water business unit, comments:


“It’s great to hear that Meg, like many other customers, found her tour around our Ewden works to be an enjoyable and interesting experience. Bookings have already shown that there’s a real appetite amongst the public to discover just what happens to their waste and clean water, and we’re looking forward to welcoming lots more customers over the coming months to our open days at works across the region.”
