Severn Trent to hold community meeting ahead of work starting in Nottinghamshire

Friday 15th September 2017

Severn Trent is to hold a community drop-in session for residents in and around Epperstone to hear all about work that’s due to start in the village this autumn.

The company plans to replace the existing main water pipe with a new one, and to move that pipe away from the current route which goes through the village, helping to safeguard the village’s and the surrounding area’s water supply for the future.

Stuart Kerr from Severn Trent says: “This work to move and replace some of the pipes in Epperstone will have huge benefits for locals, and that’s why we want to meet with them to have a chat about the work and to explain what it means for them.

“We know the people of Epperstone have experienced first-hand the consequences of pipes bursting, so we want to try and prevent that happening again with this work.”

The team from Severn Trent and Amey will be at Epperstone Village Hall, NG14 6AY on Thursday 21st September between 4pm and 7 pm.

Severn Trent contractors Amey will be carrying out the work, which is expected to be completed by Spring 2018.

“We’d like to see as many people as possible, so we can answer all their questions and hear any concerns there may be around the work,” said Stuart. “It’s also a great opportunity for us to pick up any hints or tips about working in Epperstone, as the people who live there know their village best.”
