WATER stocks in Huddersfield are okay - despite appearances to the contrary.
Stocks stand at an acceptable 56% despite the year's dry conditions, according to Yorkshire Water.
And they are confident there will be no problems, despite the levels dropping in many of the reservoirs around Huddersfield.
Karen O'Rourke, a press officer for Yorkshire Water, said: "We have no problems with the amount of drinking water available.
"Of course we always urge people to conserve water where they can, but there is plenty available."
She said the number of leaks had fallen since the drought of 1996.
During that drought water supplies had to be brought in by tanker to top up local reservoirs.
This summer recorded some of the highest temperatures on record and for 16 days in July not one drop of rain fell in Huddersfield, according to the University of Huddersfield's Weatherwatch team.
