Further Yorkshire Water Update

Andrew has shared a further update on the water pressure issues affecting the Goole area.

Andrew says, "We have now received a further update from Yorkshire Water and I will be having a call with them tomorrow morning to keep the pressure up, which is more than we can say for our water!

"I am still to receive a clear timetable on when the issues will be resolved and I am also raising the issue of compensation for those affected.

"Here is the latest I have received from them by way of update below."


Please accept our apologies for the disruption to constituents regarding the low water pressure.

As discussed, we experienced a burst on Friday that has had an impact on water pressure for some of our customers in DN14 and DN17. In order to complete the repair, we have taken that part of our network temporarily out of service. This change to our network is impacting water pressure for some customers, particularly at peak times.

We have set up a webpage where customers can go for more information here: and we will be signposting customers here through our social media channels, press statements and via the homepage of our website.

As the impact is widespread, we won’t be providing bottled water to all customers but will reimburse customers for any bottled water they buy.

They can put in a request for reimbursement here:

If customers are struggling to buy bottled water, please let us know and we’ll get some bottled water to them.

We have made sure that vital priority sites, such as Goole Hospital, have a reliable supply of water and will continue to do so. We have tankers on standby to feed the hospital, should they need it.

We’re working to fix the issue on our network and get the section of main back into usual supply as soon as possible.
