Why is the work needed?

Severn Trent are investing around £2.3 million over the next seven months to reduce leakage from our water network in Bantock Park.

What will the works involve?

The work will be completed by two teams replacing over 9km of water pipes in Bantock Park starting on Hughes Avenue and Merridale Court. Once these are completed the teams will move from street to street until the project is completed by the start of 2022.

Interesting Facts

  • The new pipes will save around 80 litres of water a day, the equivalent of 338 cups of tea or 140 pints of beer a day!
  • The existing pipes were installed between 1965 -1986.
  • We’ll be replacing various size of concrete water pipes from 3-inch to 6-inch in diameter

Will my water be affected?

Sometimes we need to temporarily stop your water supply while we connect your property to the new pipe. If we plan to interrupt your supply, we’ll let you know in advance with a card through your door letting you know the date and times of when it will be.

What are the benefits?

Once complete the work will reduce the risk of leaks in our network and protect your supply of Wonderful Water.
