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 Yorkshire Water’s ownership and responsibility.
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.
We predict that there are more than 700 private pumping stations in our region and we don’t know the location of all of them.
We’re starting a customer campaign this winter asking people to report their pumping stations to Yorkshire Water as soon as possible by calling 0345 124 24 24.
