Severn Trent start work connecting customers to sewers in Worcester

Monday 23rd January 2017

Severn Trent is due to start work in late January connecting customers to a new sewer system in and around Merriman’s Hill Road.

The area will see just under a mile of new sewer pipes installed, along with a new pumping station that will see local people connected to the main sewers for the first time.

Ian Woodward, programme engineer from Severn Trent says: “The old septic tank that our customers have been using is old and really needs replacing with a more modern, much better system.

“Connecting to our waste pipes will mean a massive improvement to the local waste water treatment and sewer system and customers can feel safe in the knowledge that we’re looking after their waste properly.”

Severn Trent working partners NMCNomenca will be carrying out the work which will start on January 30 and finish in March 2017.

“As with any work we do, safety is always a priority of ours, so to keep the team and the public safe, we’ll be using temporary traffic lights on St Georges Lane North from February 6 for around two weeks, the rest of the work will have no major impact on traffic,” said Ian.
