Severn Trent host special drop-in session in Warwickshire village

Tuesday 31st January 2017

Severn Trent hosted a special meeting in Shrewley last week to talk water with local people.

The company wanted to meet residents to chat about their water supply and to discuss improvements taking place in the area.

Chelsea-Lee Grimes, community relationship advisor, says: “Hosting meetings like this in the local community really allows us to engage and educate our customers about their water supply.

“It was a great turn out and we were able to show plans of our pipes and explain how water reaches people’s taps, something that everyone found really interesting.  We also took the opportunity to answer any questions about the current work we’re doing in Shrewley.”

Severn Trent is currently replacing around a mile and a half of water pipes in and around Shrewley as part of a £300,000 investment.

This work is part of the company’s plan to invest more than £3 billion between 2015 and 2020 on projects that will see huge benefits to customers across Severn Trent’s region.

“After our visit in Shrewley, we’re confident that the residents who came along now understand how vital it is that we carry out this work and also understand a little bit more about their water and what we do as a company,” said Chelsea-Lee.

Severn Trent contract partner Laing O’Rourke is carrying out the work in Shrewley which is expected to finish in March.
