Yorkshire Water has been named as one of only two water companies in the UK to reduce leakage last year.

The figures – based on the amount of leakage as a percentage of the water supplied – appear in this week’s Utility Week magazine and show that leakage in Yorkshire reduced by 0.41% during 2012-13 when compared to 2011-12. The only other water company to reduce its leakage was Severn Trent.

Tony O’Shea, Yorkshire Water’s leakage manager said: “We’re obviously pleased with this performance which showed that we reduced leakage by a further 7Mld (millions of litres per day) last year and out turned 30Mld below target, but we’re not resting on our laurels.
