Severn Trent invites Hagley locals to drop in session to discuss £1.2m project

Wednesday 28th June 2017

Severn Trent is inviting locals in Hagley to a community drop in session next week, to hear all about work starting in the area.

The company is investing £1.2 million in the Worcestershire town on upgrading the sewer network, which will see customers protected from flooding.

Ian Woodward from Severn Trent said: “We’re really excited to be starting this work soon in Hagley, and we’re really keen to meet the people it may be affecting.

“Experiencing sewer flooding can be devastating, so it’s really important we do this work and we want to share how we’re going to do it.”

The team from Severn Trent and their contract partners NMCNomenca, who will be carrying out the work, will be at Hagley Free Church, Worcester Road DY9 0NG on Wednesday 5th July between 2pm and 7pm.

The session is available for anyone to turn up and ask the team any questions they may have around the project.

Ian adds “It’d be great to meet as many of the locals as possible, as after all they’re the ones who know the area best and it’d be really beneficial for us to hear any hints or tips as we work within the community.

“We want to make sure everyone understands what we’re doing, and the long term benefits it will have for Hagley.”

Severn Trent plan on starting work in August and is expected to take around 5 months to complete. The project 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.
