Yorkshire Water Announces 40% Leakage Reduction Target by 2025

Article Date: 19th December 2017

Yorkshire Water has announced an ambitious package as it looks to reduce leakage by over 40 per cent by 2025 and become one of the leaders in the water industry.

Implementation of the plan starts with immediate effect – the announcement comes as industry regulator Ofwat has sets new targets for water companies to reduce water lost by billions of litres per year as part of the upcoming Price Review in 2019.
