RESERVOIR levels have dropped during the heatwave - but there's no need to worry.
Yorkshire Water bosses insist there is no likelihood of a repeat of the drought of a decade ago.
Water levels in many of the moorland reservoirs around Huddersfield have fallen in recent weeks - some of the driest on record.
But the water company insists their grid distribution system means there will be no shortage.
Other parts of the UK are looking at hosepipe bans, because of the lack of rainfall.
A Yorkshire Water spokesman said: "There is no need to worry.
"The levels in our 140 reservoirs are down, but the water stocks are about average for this time of the year. It has been very dry across the county, but we do have plans in place.
"We do depend on the weather, but the grid system we have means we can move large stocks of water around the whole county simply by turning on valves.
"The grid system was significantly improved and upgraded after the drought of 1995 and we are confident we have a good system in place".
In the drought 10 years ago, levels in many of the reservoirs - including Scammonden Water and in the Wessenden Valley at Meltham - dropped alarmingly.
Some levels dropped as low as 16% full as the lack of rain over the previous winter and a dry summer took its toll.
At one point, fleets of tankers ferried water along the M62 to put water into Scammonden and Booth Wood Reservoir, near Ripponden.
