Severn Trent invites Chesterfield locals to hear all about £5.5m project
Tuesday 5th February 2019
Residents in Chesterfield are being invited to a community meeting, to hear all about Severn Trent’s plans to invest £5.5m to improve the water network.
The company will be hosting the meeting next week and is welcoming locals from the Hasland and Hady area of the town to come along and find out about the project, which is due to start the following week.
Rachel Lowe, from Severn Trent said: “We’re going to be working in Chesterfield delivering this project to improve the water supply for those who live here, so we want to take the opportunity to meet everyone and have a chat about the work.
“We’re going to start by replacing the pipes on Grove Street, before then moving on to Penmore Street and Fanworth Court. We’ll then start on the second phase of the project, which will see us working in the Hasland and Hady area until December, so the public meeting a is a great chance for us to discuss how we’re planning to do the work.”
Teams from Severn Trent and working partners NMCN will be at Hasland Methodist Church, Chesterfield S41 0LH between 4pm and 7pm and will be on hand to answer any questions and discuss the plans to carry out the project in the town.
When all work is completed by December this year, the area will benefit from around 12 miles of new and improved water pipes.
“This is a really important project for Chesterfield, as it means when we’re complete, everyone will be able to enjoy a reliable water supply for years to come,” adds Rachel. “We know how disruptive it can be when pipes burst, so this project is making sure that our network is in top condition, meaning our customers can have a water supply they can trust.”
The scheme forms part of Severn Trent’s commitment to investing in its infrastructure which will see the equivalent of £1,400 invested for every home and business it serves between 2015 and 2020.
“We hope people come along and meet us,” continues Rachel. “We’re going to be working in Chesterfield for a while, so it will be great to hear of any hints or tips people may have for us working in the area, and be able to explain the project and the benefits it will bring.”
