Commonly Asked Questions About Yorkshire Water
Many of the people who ring Yorkshire Water customer services have the same problems. We have listed some of the most frequently asked questions and provided their answers below.
There seems to be something wrong with my water – what do I do?
Cloudy or milky water does not pose a health risk. It is simply a side effect of air mixing with the water supply and should disappear as the air bubbles rise to the surface. Discoloured water is not harmful either. It is caused by iron and manganese deposits. However, if it is unappealing, you can get rid of it by running the tap for several minutes or leave it to stand in a jug until the sediment has settled to the bottom.
I need a copy of my water bill for a new tenant – where do I get it?
If you can’t find your bill and need one to give to a tenant who is moving into a property, do not worry. You can request a copy of your water bill by calling the Yorkshire Water contact number or visiting the Yorkshire Water website.
What is HomeServe?

There are four different types of cover that Yorkshire Water customers can take out: Water supply cover, electrical cover, boilers and heating cover, and combined home cover.

A Background Of Yorkshire Water
Yorkshire Water is a water supplier that serves West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire and the East Riding area of Yorkshire. It originates from the Yorkshire Water Authority, one of ten different water authorities that were created after the passing of the Water Act in 1973. It was privatised in the late 1980s and later floated on the London Stock Exchange.
Yorkshire Water is chaired by Kevin Whiteman and has Richard Flint as its Chief Executive Officer. It outputs 1.3 GL per day of drinking water every day and makes revenues exceeding £930 million. The company employs approximately 2500 people.
Yorkshire Water has a fairly poor history in terms of its environmental record and water quality. It was fined in 2000 for supplying water that was not fit for consumption. It was hit a second time in 2006 for producing unfit water. And once again it was fined in 2007 for allowing polluted matter to enter their water which resulted in the death of wildlife.
However, it has turned its reputation around in the last few years, to the point that it was awarded ‘Utility Company Of The Year’ by Utility Week three years in a row.
Yorkshire Water owns 72,000 acres of land in the district and often makes it available for people to explore. The company have been known to organise cycle rides, leisure walks and water sports.
