Where does Yorkshire Water come from?

Most of the water that Yorkshire Water supplies to the domestic market comes from surface-water sources such as reservoirs, rivers and streams, as well as from boreholes. No matter which source your water has come from, Yorkshire Water carries out extensive testing to ensure its safety before reaching your home.

Water Rates Baildon

Baildon water rates come in two forms - metered and unmetered. The simplest way to find out which applies to you is to look at a water bill. If your bill shows a water meter number, or the account number starts with MC, this means that you are a metered customer. If the account number starts with UC or you cannot see a water meter number, then you should be an unmetered customer.

If you don't have a bill, you can check for a water meter in your home. These would be located in the garden with a small box set into the ground, or near the water stop tap, which is usually in the kitchen or garage. If you find a water meter in either of these locations, then your home has metered rates, and you must give your water supplier regular water meter readings so that they can bill you accurately. This can be done either via the supplier website, your online account, by giving them a call, or via their app.

Homes that are not metered will have a rateable value of the home instead. The rateable value uses factors such as property, location, size and the availability of local services to create a usage value that is then applied to your bill. Check out our water rates guide to learn more about metered and non metered rates.

The average water rates Baildon water residents are being charged result in an average water bill of around £491 a year. This amount combines both water supply and sewerage costs.

The higher the mineral content, the harder it will be, and the less effective it is for use in your home.

  2. If you aren't at home, send Yorkshire Water a message on social media on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, or simply give them a call.

Baildon No Water

If you have no water in your home, you need to identify if the issue is caused by your home plumbing or if it is a Yorkshire Water outage impacting Baildon.

  1. Check the "In Your Area" sections of the Yorkshire Water website for any information explaining why you have no water, and when they expect regular service to resume.
  2. Ask your neighbours whether they have the same issue as you. If they do, this suggests an area outage, and you should contact your supplier.
  3. Check that your stop tap is open. A stop tap must be turned to the open position to allow water to flow.
  4. If you have no water, is it only no cold water, or no hot water? If you have cold water but no hot water, the issue will be with your home plumbing and not the water company

    If there is no cold water or water of any form, contact Yorkshire Water for assistance.
