Yorkshire's seaside resorts are amongst the most popular holiday destinations in the UK. Each year thousands of tourists and Yorkshire residents flock to these shores for fun, a bit of relaxation or a dip in the sea.
In 2010 East Riding of Yorkshire Council, the Environment Agency, North Yorkshire County Council, Scarborough Borough Council, Welcome to Yorkshire and Yorkshire Water formed the Yorkshire Bathing Water Partnership to "create excellent beaches in Yorkshire" making them one of the best coastlines in Europe.
In Bridlington, Yorkshire Water will be investing £40 million to improve the way they manage waste water in the town.
Works carried out will reduce the chance of untreated water entering the sea during times of heavy rainfall, making Bridlington's beaches even cleaner. By making these improvements the company will play a huge part in securing the highest standards of bathing water quality for the town - making both Bridlington North Bay and South Bay eligible for Blue Flags in the future.
For further information about the partnership as well as updates on investigation and construction works, visit the Yorkshire Water website.
