New water mains and renewals
Some residents have asked what exactly is going on and when will it end. They are installing new water mains and renewing old ones – Quote: To allow us to move water across our communities ensuring a resilient customer supply and enabling us to end unsustainable abstraction.
We are investing in our network to minimise bursts and installing new pipelines. This will allow us to keep more water in the ground to help your local chalk stream whilst continuing to provide your community with a reliable and high-quality supply of water for many years to come.
- Stanwell Moor Road and Park Road, Staines – water mains replacement.
We’ll be starting work in September to replace the water mains on Stanwell Moor Road and Park Road.
We’re sorry, we know it can be inconvenient for us to work near your home.
