New sewers in Alsager
Work including the installation of a new sewer in Alsager has just been completed by United Utilities.
It is hoped that the new sewer system and the installation of an underground water storage tank by drainage contractors will protect homes by preventing flooding on Barrett Road, Linley Grove and Linley Road.
The installation of the huge storage tank will mean that during times of prolonged heavy rainfall the original sewer system should not be overwhelmed and flood risk will be reduced.
The Project Coordinator for United Utilities, Jason Boyd, stated:
“We are pleased to say that this essential work is now complete and there should be no further traffic disruption for local residents, which we know has been an issue for them whilst work has been ongoing.
“We would like to thank residents for their continued patience and understanding and we hope that our work will bring peace of mind to those who have been affected by the very unpleasant problem of sewer flooding.”
Further landscaping work needs to be done in the Linley Grove car park area, but this will be done in the spring when it will have the best chance to establish properly.
The company pledged to spend £2.9bn between 2005 and 2010 on environmental improvement and water quality projects.
