Dear Rebecca Dovener,

Thank you very much for taking the time to reply.

As I said in my original email, I would be interested in as much information as is available for the site.

However as I understand that is a big ask, I would specifically be interested in:

Site Name & designation,
Information regarding what the site is used for,
Capacity of the site,
Areas that the site supplies.

Greatest of thanks,

Alan

Dear Alan Wake,

 

I refer to your request for environmental information submitted to
Yorkshire Water dated 1 February 2020. You provide further clarification
for this request on the 17 February 2021.

 

We have reviewed your request under the Environmental Information
Regulations 2004. 

 

For the purposes of 12(5)(1)(a), a public authority may refuse to disclose
information to the extent that its disclosure would adversely affect
international relations, defence, national security or public safety.  In
making the decision to refuse to provide this data I have considered the
public interest test in making the data public. I do acknowledge that
there is always a general public interest in the disclosure of
environmental information and as a water company we always endeavour to
respond to Environmental Information Requests (EIR) in full, being open
and transparent. However as a water company we also have a list of
sensitive sites, the details of which are not published within the public
domain to protect our core business operations, covering both clean and
waste water and our customers public safety.

 

Based on the above, it is my belief that providing the information you
have requested would release into the public domain, information that is
not readily available which could adversely affect our core operations as
a water company and public safety. As a result of this we will not be
providing the information you have requested.

 

In accordance with the Environmental Information Regulations 2004, if you
are not satisfied with the reply to your request you can ask for an
internal review.  A request for an internal review must be submitted
within 40 working days by contacting the Data Protection Team.

 

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of the internal review you have
the right of appeal to the Information Commissioner who can be contacted
at:
