Severn Trent invites community to hear about its plans for new £1million water mains project in Farndon

Farndon residents are being given the chance to find out further information about a project that will see Severn Trent invest more than £1million to install a new water main pipe.

The brand-new water pipe will start on the Holt side of the River Dee, then go across the riverbed and out onto High Street, Farndon ending at the junction of Church Street. 

A total of £1.2million is being invested by the water company to mitigate bursts and water quality issues due to the old main under the River Dee.

The work, to make sure that everyone in Farndon receives a reliable and sustainable water supply, has begun and will run until December 2024

Anyone who has any questions or would like to know about what is happening with the scheme, is invited along to a drop-in session at Farndon War Memorial Hall, Church Lane, Farndon, CH3 6QD on Friday 12th July.

Running between 4pm and 7pm, it’s a chance to meet the project team and ask any questions about the work and for us to find out more about the area, which we may find useful during the scheme. 

Catherine Webb, Community Communications Officer for Severn Trent, said: 

“To make sure our customers in Farndon have improved water quality, we need to install the new pipe, which will help with this and secure the water network for years to come while making sure our network is in the best possible condition.

“We would love to meet with residents living in the area and have the chance to talk to customers about the works, our working schedule for the next few months and how this will benefit the local community. We would encourage everyone to come along to the drop-in session and find out more.”
