Severn Trent to hold drop-in session to discuss water improvements in Buxton
Wednesday 6th December 2017
Severn Trent is inviting local people to learn all about the next stage of its £7 million investment in new water pipes for Buxton.
The company is due to start the next part of its work water pipes in Victoria Park Road and Chatsworth Road in January and is keen to give local people the chance to have their say.
Mike Holder, programme engineer from Severn Trent, said: “We’re investing a lot of money in Buxton to make sure that everyone in the town has a water supply they can rely on for years to come.“The older pipes get, the more unreliable they are – so this investment will make sure that you can have a shower or make a cup of tea whenever you want to.”
The company, which will be using Amey as a contractor for the work, aims to have this section of work completed before Spring 2018.
When all the work in Buxton is completed late next year, the area will be able to benefit from 30 miles of new water pipes.
“It’s important that the people in Buxton understand what we’re doing, and what benefits it will bring to the area,” said Mike. “So we’re holding a public exhibition to talk all about the work we’ve started, this next stage of work, as well as work that’s due to start in the Spring.”
The team will be at The Pavillion Gardens, St John's Rd, Buxton SK17 6BE on Tuesday 12th December, between 3pm and 7pm where they’ll be happy to answer any questions, and address any concerns people may have about the work.
