Major improvements to sewer network in Teversal set to begin

Tuesday 15 September 2020

Severn Trent is investing £1.6m to upgrade the sewer network in Teversal near Mansfield, bringing big improvements for customers and the environment.
The 10-month project will begin from Monday 21st September, including plans to connect homes to a brand new sewer pipe and a new pumping station that will allow waste to be taken away more efficiently, where it can be treated at a nearby works.
This major upgrade, which is expected to be up and running by July 2021, will replace existing private pipes and septic tanks in some parts of the area.
To keep everyone safe during the initial part of the project, a temporary road closure will be put in place along Buttery Lane from Monday 5 October to Friday 18 October, between the old railway bridge to just pass the river crossing.
Helen Purdy from Severn Trent said: “We’re investing £1.6m to improve the service we offer in Teversal, after listening to what matters most to our customers. When we’re finished, this rural community will have a reliable and efficient sewer network, giving them peace of mind.
“It’s also great news for the environment because waste will be able to flow into a nearby treatment works, where it’ll be treated and cleaned faster and more efficiently.”
Helen added: “To carry out the work safely, we’ll need to put a temporary road closure in place along Buttery Lane for a short while, which we understand will cause some frustration.
“We’ll be doing everything we can to minimise the disruption and we’d like to thank everyone in advance, for their patience as we get this essential work done.”
