Severn Trent invests a further £1 million in Malvern to stamp out sewer floods

Posted: Monday 19th September 2016

Severn Trent is planning to spend almost £1 million to help prevent sewer flooding in Malvern as part of a wider multi-million pound project to improve the water and sewer network in the area.

.Severn Trent's senior programme engineer, Ian Woodward, explains why the work is required: "The sewer pipes in Malvern have served the community for many years, but are now coming to the end of their useful life. This has resulted in a series of burst pipes in recent years, leading to properties suffering from sewer flooding and pollution in the local area. This is not acceptable and we're determined to prevent it.

"Our contract partners NMCNomenca, who are carrying out the work on our behalf, will be installing nearly a mile of new sewer pipes and making improvements to the local sewage pumping station to improve its performance. We've already begun our work to improve the water supply network in Malvern, so this work will help to ensure the town has a modern water and sewer network able to cope with the increasing demands placed on it.

"We're doing this work at the same time as the water improvements to make sure we get everything done in one go to help minimise the disruption. We're hopeful that the investments Severn Trent are making to improve the water and sewer pipes will allow the local people of Malvern to enjoy a reliable sewer and water network for years to come."
