Severn Trent invites locals to discuss new water pipes for Cemmaes

Wednesday 4th January 2017

Severn Trent is inviting local people in Cemmaes to come and hear about plans to replace just under four miles of water pipes in the village.

The work is part of Severn Trent’s £5 million investment in Powys, which will see 30 miles of water pipes replaced across the county.

Gareth Mead from Severn Trent said: “We’re really looking forward to meeting the local people in Cemmaes to explain why this work is so vital to the village.  It’s also a chance for us to hear their feedback and to get any hints or tips regarding working in Cemmaes, as after all, the locals are the ones who know their area best.”

The drop-in session will be held on Wednesday 11 January 2017 at Cemmaes Church Hall, SY20 9PR, between 4pm and 7pm.

Severn Trent contract partners Amey will be carrying out the work for the company, with the Cemmaes section expected to take up to nine months to be completed.

“We want our work to cause as little disruption as possible, so these drop in sessions are really important for us,” said Gareth. “We want to work with the community and assure everyone that carrying out this work that will massively improve the quality of their water supply for years to come.”
