Severn Trent invests £270,000 on pipe upgrades in Worcestershire

Monday 27th March 2017

We're ready to start work next Monday on a major scheme that will bring benefits to residents in Charlton

We are investing more than a quarter of a million pounds replacing half a kilometre of sewer pipes in the village of Charlton, with work taking place close to Jubilee Bridge on Mill Bank.

Ian Woodward, senior programme engineer for Severn Trent, says: “We’re always looking for ways to help improve our customers’ experience, so we’re replacing a sewer pipe that’s had a history of bursting, which is obviously unacceptable.

“This work will ensure that our customers’ waste water is taken away reliably and will help protect the local environment as we’re reducing the risk of pollution into the River Avon.

”The project is expected to take around six weeks to complete, with work being carried out by NMCNomenca.

“We’ll always aim to cause as little disruption as possible within the community, but some traffic management will be needed to keep our teams safe as we carry out the work. We’re hopeful that everyone will appreciate the huge benefits this work will bring and that the work is not an inconvenience to locals,” said Ian.
