Yorkshire Water have told BBC Yorkshire that even if the rest of spring and summer turns out to be as dry as 1995, there will be no water restrictions in Yorkshire.
1995 was a disastrous year for the company. Reservoirs were full at the end of March, but a pipe network that was badly in need of repair, coupled with drought conditions which lasted from Spring through till Autumn, meant that some parts of the county were within days of running out of water.
Drinking water was tankered in from Kielder reservoir in Northumberland to Scammenden reservoir in West Yorkshire at the height of the crisis.
But since then the company has fixed most of its leaky pipes, and spent £300 million pounds in developing a state of the art underground pipe network.
This allows water to be pumped around the county from 3 main sources.
In the west of the region reservoirs capture Pennine rainfall; In the north they can extract water from several rivers including the Ouse; and in the east they can take ground water from ground from bore holes.
Despite the fact that March was the driest since 1994 in Bradford, and April so far has been exceptionally dry, February was a very wet month, and it's largely because of this rainfall that water stocks currently stand at 84%.
The company say that should the drought be worse than that experienced in 1995 then they may have to review the situation, and they advise all their customers to conserve water at any time of the year.
But the drought of 1995, which across some parts of the Yorkshire Dales was statistically a 1 in a 500 year event, will take some beating; so for Yorkshire Water to make the prediction they have, shows a great deal of confidence on their part.
