Stroud Sewerage Upgrade

We are improving the sewerage system in Stroud to help prevent flooding and spills in the area.

Our progress so far

We need to carry out sewerage upgrade works across Stroud in order to reduce future sewer flooding and spills in your area. Following our investigation works in 2021, we reached the next stage in our project and our main work began in March 2022. We have carried out vegetation removal which includes hedge and tree removal where it has been deemed necessary.   

Shops and business in Stroud remain open and are not affected. 

Work started on 9 May 2022 - Work began for approximately three months upsizing the existing pipework through Waitrose Car Park and Stroud District Council Car Park. This work will allow surface water to discharge into local watercourses, rather than going into our sewers, which could cause spillages into local rivers. This work is estimated for completion at the end of September 2022. 

Work started on 7 July 2022 - Galliford Try, our contractors, will carry out preparation work for the tunneling activity within the fields at the end of Meadow Lane. During this time, you may experience an increase in construction traffic, please be assured we will do everything we can to keep disruption to a minimum. We apologise for any inconvenience. We’ve been working closely with Waitrose and the Council to plan the work at the least disruptive times. This work is estimated for completion in Spring 2023. 

A Tunnel Boring Machine named ‘Florence’ has been launched as part of the £25m project to upgrade the sewer network in Stroud.

Our pledge that we’ll Get River Positive by 2030.
