Water pipes to be replaced in Hawes area

Yorkshire Water will carry out work to lay new clean water pipes in Hawes over the coming months, as part of more than £1 million investment in the area.

The water company, who said it had delayed the work in order to accommodate peak tourism and business periods, will lay more than 4,230m of pipes in order to improve resilience in the water network.

The work will be carried out in stages, to minimise disruption as much as possible and is due to be completed by Spring 2022.

Mark Allsop, customer liaison advisor at Yorkshire Water, said: “We’ve worked closely with North Yorkshire County Council’s Highways team to plan the work in Hawes, and will carry it out in three stages to avoid as much disruption as possible.

“We’d like to thank our customers in advance for their patience.”

  1. Will we see a return to the same water pressure in our homes that we used to enjoy once the work is done? Over the last few years the water pressure has decreased drastically.
