Why is the work needed?

Severn Trent are investing around £1.5 million over the next nine months to reduce leakage from our water network in Forest Fields.

What will the works involve?

The work will be completed by two teams replacing 5.8 km of water pipes in Forest Fields starting on Gladstone Street and Laurie Avenue. Once these are completed the teams will move from street to street until the project is completed in April 2022.

Interesting Facts

  • The new pipes will save the equivalent of 200,000 cups of tea or 170,000 pints of beer a day!
  • Laid end to end in a straight line the new pipe would reach from Goose Fair to junction 26 of the M1.

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.
