Severn Trent shares update on £6.5m Severn Ham project

Tuesday 25th May

Severn Trent has shared an update from the site of its £6.5m project to upgrade water pipes in The Ham, Tewkesbury.

The images show the very first pipes being laid, marking the start of these major works to replace almost 1.6 miles of water pipes under the Severn Ham with brand new ones, which will provide the area with a more resilient water supply. 

Shannon Currall, from Severn Trent, said: “We’re really excited to share these developments with the local community, as these water pipes under the Ham will supply the whole area with water. We know it’s still a difficult time for a lot of people right now, but making sure that our customers have a reliable supply of water still remains as important as ever and everything is progressing really well.

Severn Trent has reassured customers that they are not planning on there being any interruptions to water supplies during the works, which is due to take place until the end of November 2021.  

Shannon added: “We always want there to be water for our customers when they need it, which is why this essential work improving the water network is so important to the local community, however, we also recognise that this work might be inconvenient at times and we’d like to thank everyone for their patience while we carry out this work. ”
