Hear more about work to prevent sewer flooding
11 February 2016
Severn Trent’s plans to invest more than £1 million to prevent sewer flooding for residents in the Wetlands View, Newcastle-under-Lyme, will start later this month. Before work begins, the company is inviting local residents to a drop-in session to hear more about the plans.
Phil Smith, programme engineer for Severn Trent, comments: “The sewer pipes in Watlands View aren’t working as well as we’d like, and when it rains heavily the sewer system struggles to cope, so we need to carry out this essential work to prevent sewer flooding in the area.
The work, which will begin on 22 February, will last for approximately five months, and will start in the path adjacent to Watlands View for six weeks, before moving onto Watlands View for the remainder of the work.
