Severn Trent invites locals to community meeting ahead of water improvement project starting in Stratford Upon Avon

Wednesday 16th September 2020

Severn Trent is inviting the people of Whatcote Village to a community meeting before starting its £120,000 water improvement project in the village.

The company will be replacing water pipes to improve the water network, and would like to meet with the community to explain how the work is planned, and what benefits it will bring to those who live in the area.

Shannon Currall, from Severn Trent said: “We know how important it is that our customers always have water when they need it, that’s why projects like this really matter as by replacing our water pipes, we’re really helping to prevent any problems for anyone.  This project is making sure our water network is of top quality, meaning our customers can have a reliable water supply for years to come.”

Members of the Severn Trent team and partners WaterTight, will be available on Tuesday 22nd September 2020, in the car park of The Royal Oak, Whatcote, CV36 5EF, between 4pm and 6.30pm.

The team will be on hand to answer any questions about the project, and show where work will be taking place and any traffic management that might be needed.

“It’d be great to see as many of those who will benefit from the project there as possible, as it’s a great opportunity for us to show you where and how we will be working,” adds Shannon. “We want everyone to be in the know about where we’ll be and when and we understand that local people have great knowledge of the area and can help us to do the work in a way that causes as little disruption as possible.”

Severn Trent will begin work replacing the pipes on Monday 28 September, and expect to be completed by early November 2020.

Shannon continues: “When we’ve finished this project, everyone living in the area will be able to benefit from the project, and enjoy a water supply that they can trust for years to come.”
