Newark: Severn Trent announces £115,000 investment for Collingham customers
Severn Trent has announced a £115,000 investment for its customers, that will see essential upgrades to water pipes.
The company will be working in the Collingham area, increasing pipe sizes so it can better accommodate new development in the area.
“It’s really important that our network is always in the best condition, and with developments going up, and the population increasing in the town, we need to make sure that our customers water supplies are not affected by any increase in demand,” said Lisa Orme, community communications officer for the project.
“Our teams will be making the pipes bigger, so they can hold a lot more water, meaning there’s always plenty for everyone when they need it, and their water remains unaffected by new developments, giving our customers the peace of mind that, despite more people living in the area, their water will supply is secure.”
Teams will be working in sections along Low Street, closing a section at a time, which is expected to take four weeks to complete.
“We are working in small sections along Low Street to keep our teams and other people safe, so we really hope this doesn’t cause much disruption,” said Lisa.
“Our teams will be doing everything they can to make the upgrades, with everything back to normal as quickly as possible.
“When all is finished, those living in the area will benefit from a reliable water supply that’s been upgraded to meet the towns needs, now and into the future.”
