Severn Trent to hold drop in session to discuss water improvements in Buxton

Thursday 21st December 2017

As work gets underway in Buxton, Severn Trent is inviting locals to learn all about the next stage of its £7 million investment in new water pipes for the area.

The company is due to start the next part of its work around Victoria Park Road and Milnbank Avenue 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.”

Severn Trent contract partners, Amey, will be carrying out the work on behalf of the company.

When all the work in Buxton is completed late this 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, the next stages of work, as well as work that’s due to start in the Spring.”

The team will be at Community Room, Fairfield Adult Education Building, St Nicholas Hall, Victoria Park Road, Buxton,SK17 7PE on Wednesday 10th January between 3pm and 7pm where they’ll be happy to answer any questions, and address any concerns people may have about the work.
