Last Friday, Andrew met with Yorkshire Water at their facility in Cowick to discuss the Drinking Water Investment Scheme. Andrew was able to view their on-going £3.5 million improvement in the Goole and Snaith area's drinking water. The area is the first in Yorkshire to have UV light treated drinking water, which kills more bacteria.
Commenting on the visit, Andrew said: "It was great to visit this facility with Yorkshire Water and to view their multi-million pound investment in improving drinking water in the Goole and Snaith area. To think we are the first place in Yorkshire to be benefiting from water that has also been treated with bacteria killing UV light is fantastic.
"Coupled with the tens of millions of pounds Yorkshire Water have invested in improved drainage locally since the flooding of 2010 and 2011, it is clear that the company has made a priority if investing in our area. I'll continue to work with them on further improvements locally, such as the scheme currently underway in the Attlee Drive area of Goole."
