We're inviting local people to discuss with us the new water pipes for Quarndon

Our customers in Quarndon, Derbyshire, are going to benefit from a £260,000 investment to help make their water supply more reliable.   A drop-in session is being held for local residents to find out all about the work on Tuesday 28 February at Quarndon Church Hall.  

Programme engineer, John Springett, explains: “We want to make sure our customers continue to get a reliable water supply.  Unfortunately, the water pipes in the area have grown old and are now prone to bursts, which can lead to interruptions in the water supply.  To help prevent this from happening in the future, we’re investing £260,000 to install over two
kilometres of new water pipes in the area.

“Before we start work, we’ll be holding a drop-in session for local residents to find out more about our plans.  We’d love people to come and talk to us on Tuesday 28 February 2017 at the Church Hall, Church Road, Quarndon. DE22 5JA from 3.30pm to 7pm.  We’ll be there, together with our contract partners, Laing O’Rourke, to answer any questions about the work.  These sessions are a great way for us to find out how we can minimise the impact of any work on the local community, after all, the people who know the area best are the local

“We’ll be starting work later in March and we expect everything to be finished by the summer.  When work begins we’ll do all we can to help minimise any disruption and we’d like to ask the local community for their patience until the new pipes are in place. We won’t be there for long, but the benefits will be.”
