Waste & Water Challenge
Over the next four years Severn Trent will be taking on one of its biggest ever challenges, investing £60million to dramatically improve the waste and water network in Newark.
The existing water and sewer pipes in Newark have been serving the community for many years, but they are simply no longer able to cope with the extra demands being placed on them. The result is an increased risk of interruptions to customer’s water supplies and, more worryingly, an unacceptable increase in the number of sewer flooding incidents.
There are nearly 400 properties currently at risk of sewer flooding in the Newark area. This is not acceptable and that’s why Severn Trent is investing so heavily in Newark to help prevent it, replacing more than 20 kilometres of old sewer and water pipes with new, larger ones over the next four years.
Ahead of work starting in October this year, the company is inviting its customers in Newark to a public exhibition to learn more about their plans and the benefits the work will deliver. As the company’s solution engineer, Nick Wallace explains: “This is one of the largest investments we’ve ever made in one area and it’s important that we get it right for our customers.
We’d encourage local residents to come along to hear more about the work. We’ll be at Newark Town Hall on Tuesday 13 September and Wednesday 14 September 2016. Our project team will be available in the Ballroom from 11.00 to 19.30 each day to explain our proposals in more detail and answer any questions or concerns people may have about the project.”
