Severn Trent to hold drop-in session ahead of new water pipe work in Powys

Monday 3rd July

Severn Trent is to hold a community drop-in session as work continues to install new water pipes in the Aberhosan area of Powys. 

The ongoing project is the latest phase of a £5m investment in the county which is seeing new water pipes installed in Tal-y-Wern, Melin-Byrhedyn and Aberhosan. 

Gareth Mead, from Severn Trent, explains: “Our work in Powys so far has been going really well and these new water pipes will provide our customers with a really reliable supply of water.

“We’re now gearing up for the next phase of the work and want to invite as many local people as possible to come and meet with us to find out more about our plans.”

The drop-in session will take place on Monday 10 July between 4pm and 7pm at Old School Hall in Aberhosan

Gareth continues: “We’d encourage as many people as possible to come along and meet with the project engineers to ask any questions and to raise any concerns they might have.

“Contractors from Amey are completing the work for us and, to allow them to work safely, we’ll need to have temporary road closures in place.

“We apologise for any disruption this causes and hope that customers appreciate that these new pipes will bring some real benefits to the local area, giving people a reliable source of water for many years to come.” 

The next phase of the project will take place between Darowen and Tal-y-Wern, and work will then start in Aberhosan at the end of July and continue through the school summer holidays.
