Length of river improved Performance commitment

Outcome; We protect and improve the water environment

Description; The length of river (kilometres) in the Yorkshire Water region improved through our investments during 2015-2020.


AMP6 reporting period

Link Target More than or equal to 440km of river by 2020 Result 39.61 km as of attached data publication, programme continues (see below)

Full report for our annual performance report here was initially published in July 2019, updated in November 2019.


This is made up of; 100km from water service component and 340km from wastewater service component



About the data

We aim to publish a report on the total improvements by year end 2020, when the majority of the planned improvements are delivered. This is anticipated to equate to 356.96km from the wastewater component and 106.05km from the water component, giving a total of 463.01km against the 440km target.


At end of 2018/2019 there is zero cumulative river length to report for the waste water service component. We have completed a project at Clayton West which carries a river length of 3.4km but is part of a grouping of sites (with Lundwood, West Bretton and Bolton on Dearne). Grouped sites require all sites to be delivered before any river lengths can be reported. We aim to improve 356.96km of river for the waste water service component, which is higher than the performance commitment of target 340km. We aim to deliver this improvement in 2019/2020.


For the water service component, five projects (two fish passage, three flow) were signed off by the Environment Agency as complete in 2018/2019. These all contribute a cumulative total of 39.61km towards the target to improve 100km of river by the end of 2020. It is currently forecast that 66.44km of river improvements will be completed in year 5. This will bring about a total improvement of 106.05km which is higher than the performance commitment of target 100km.

Outcome; We protect and improve the water environment

Description; An overall assessment of the long-term stability and reliability for waste water quality. It’s based on a series of measures which includes the number of waste water treatment works failing to meet compliance and reactive equipment failures.


Link Target; Stable    Actual; Stable


About the data

More information regarding this performance commitment can be found here on page 221 and on rows 7-13 of page 214 for the data tables to which the data refers to.


Technical details specific to reference bandings


Reference and Upper Reference refer to the bandings that determine whether a performance commitment is improving, stable or deteriorating, with an overall assessment taken by way of a calculation of the sub-measures (rows 21-24 page 214 as detailed above). The first assessment is the overall status of the main S&R measure as either; Improving, Stable or Deteriorating. This assessment is reported annually with confirmation of the end of AMP position made in year four based on the year five forecast outturn position. Sub-measures will be judged as either Stable, Improving or Deteriorating depending on their position in relation to the reference levels set at PR14 and confirmed in Ofwats ‘FD[final determination] Outcome and ODI[outcome delivery incentives] base dataset’. The number of sub-measures’ categorisation will then be aggregated to confirm the overall assessment for the overall S&R measure.


To make sure that our assurance methods are robust, independent technical assurance is provided by Halcrow.
