Severn Trent to hold community session ahead of work in Powys

Tuesday 22 August

Severn Trent is to meet with people in Cemmaes ahead of the latest phase of its £5m project to replace water pipes in the area.

The company has been working across Powys in recent months as part of the scheme that will provide residents with a water supply they can rely on for the future.

Gareth Mead, from Severn Trent, explains: “This has been a big project for us, with miles of brand new pipes being laid underground to replace the old ones that have become more prone to leaks and bursts.

“We’re now gearing up to start work in Cemmaes and Cwm Llinau, and want to speak to as many people as possible to make them aware of our plans.

“That’s why we’re holding a community drop-in session to give people the chance to ask any questions they might have.”

The drop-in session will take place at Cwm Llinau community hall on Thursday 24 August from 4pm to 7pm.

The first part of this work is due to start on Monday 4 September along the A470 towards Cemmaes. Then, in late October through to early December, further work will take place in Cwm-Llinau on sections of the road near the community hall.

Gareth continues: “We hope to have all of the work completed by the end of the year and our contractors from Amey will work closely with local people to minimise the impact the work has on daily life.

“The engineers will work as quickly as they can to get everything finished on time and we hope everyone understands the benefits of having a really reliable water network across the region.”
