Severn Trent is to begin work in Worcester, as part of a £1.25m project that will make sure its customers have wonderful water for years to come. The listed utilities company will begin working in The Shambles, where it will install new water pipes to help prevent leaks and bursts.
Customers will be conected to a new sewer system in and around Merriman’s Hill Road. The area will see just under a mile of new sewer pipes installed, along with a new pumping station that will see local people connected to the main sewers for the first time.
Gareth Mead, from Severn Trent, said: “This work is really important for the people of Worcester as it means they’ll have a water supply they can rely on for future generations.
The project forms part of Severn Trent’s commitment to investing in its infrastructure which will see the equivalent of £1,400 invested for every home and business it serves between 2015 and 2020.
