River Health team to tackle River Aire water quality

By Grace Cooper

Yorkshire Water are introducing a new River Health team to help upkeep the quality of rivers across various locations in the county – including the River Aire.

The aim of the new department is to deliver Yorkshire Water’s environmental commitments to customers and regulators through improving and tending to river health across the region.

Yorkshire Water hope to collaborate with local communities, with the new team aiming to work alongside community groups to listen to what locals think is important for their rivers. 

The river Aire is one river that will be taken care of by the new team. Yorkshire Water says it has improved over time in terms of its water quality and the removal of physical barriers, which means it can support fish moving through the river. But Yorkshire Water do acknowledge that more needs to be done. 

Kevin Reardon, head of river health at Yorkshire Water, said: “We are committed as a business to playing our part to further improve river and coastal water quality around the region.

“The health of our rivers is a key national conversation, and we all have a lot to do to deliver investment in the areas that will make improvements to water quality”.

Yorkshire Water are currently recruiting for 16 more roles to be part of the River Health Team. More information on the types of roles and applications is online, anybody interested can find out more at Yorkshire Water careers site.
