A £2.5 million scheme by Anglian Water to connect almost 150 homes in Nacton to mains sewerage for the first time is underway. It’s anticipated this scheme will take until Spring to complete.
Antony Innes, from Anglian Water, said: “This is a great project for customers in Nacton who will soon be able to connect to mains sewerage for the first time – removing the need to dispose of their waste water into septic tanks.
“We’ve been in touch with residents and local businesses throughout the planning of this scheme to let them know what we are planning and why, as well as letting them know what to expect while work is underway.”
Work to lay almost seven kilometres of new sewer around the village and local area will start next week. Building work on the two new pumping stations has already begun near to The Street to the north of the village, and near to Church Road to the south.
Antony continued: “Unfortunately, we will need to close a number of roads at different stages of the scheme to allow work to progress quickly and efficiently. Our engineers will be working hard to keep any disruption to a minimum.
“We know work of this scale will cause disruption and inconvenience to residents and we are sorry for that. However the benefits of this work should far outweigh the interruption.”
