Severn Trent is to begin the last stage of its work in Leicestershire next week, where the company has been making essential improvements to the water network.

The company is investing £5 million to renew the water pipes between Cropston and Leicester Water Centre, providing customers with a water supply they can rely on for years to come.

Timothy Ip, from Severn Trent said: “We know how important it is to have water when you need it, so projects like this are vital in making sure we can keep the water flowing through our network, and into our customers’ homes.

“This project started in early 2018, but we came across some difficulties whilst working which we’ve now resolved, so we’re back to complete the final section of work.”

Severn Trent partner Laing O’Rourke will be carrying out the work on behalf of the company, which is expected to take six weeks to complete.
