Yorkshire Water adding ranger team to protect and promote countryside

Yorkshire Water is adding a team of in-house countryside rangers – a first for the utility company – to promote public safety, access and conservation across its range of recreational sites throughout the region.

Recruitment for a lead ranger is underway, with the successful person leading a team who will oversee Yorkshire Water’s reservoirs and engage with visitors to ensure the sites are safe and welcoming for all visitors.

Yorkshire Water’s recreational sites are in some of Yorkshire’s most picturesque and famous countryside, ranging from the Peak District National Park in the south, along the Pennine hills in the west of the county and up to the Nidderdale AONB, the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the North York Moors National Park in the north.

Peter Coddington, partnership and portfolio manager at Yorkshire Water, said: “We have a number of beautiful recreation sites across the region and our new team of rangers will help to keep them that way, ensuring everyone visiting our sites has a fantastic experience.

“Many of our sites are remote and having a dedicated team responsible for monitoring, maintaining, and promoting them will help us tackle anti-social behaviour, people entering the water at our reservoirs and help to inform visitors of the Countryside Code.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming a new ranger team who will have the knowledge and experience required to assist in managing our recreational sites for the benefit of all visitors.”
