Yorkshire Water has awarded its new £113m waste water network repair and maintenance contract to Amey.
The deal is set to start in September and will run until 2020 with Amey covering the whole of the Yorkshire region.
Yorkshire Water has around 55,000 kilometres of sewerage pipes across the county shifting used water and sewage from nearly 2.5m properties to over 600 waste water treatment works.
Amey will undertake all of Yorkshire Water’s contracted repair and maintenance services on its extensive waste water network.
It will also support Yorkshire Water in protecting homes from sewer flooding and pollution incidents, which equates to over 100,000 jobs per year.
Charlie Haysom, Yorkshire Water’s Director of Service Delivery, said: “This major contract has been designed to deliver the best possible service for our customers at the best price with the highest levels of safety.”
Mel Ewell, CEO, Amey, said: “The awarding of this contract to Amey is testament to the strength of our relationship with Yorkshire Water and their trust in our ability to deliver services to the highest possible standards as well as our considerable experience in the waste water industry.
“We are delighted to expand the scope of our work with Yorkshire Water. Both our organisations will work together to improve essential services and provide an outstanding customer experience across the region.”
