We’re building a new 6.8km water pipeline between Hundon and Great Wratting in Suffolk.
We’re committed to providing reliable and resilient sewerage and water services to you and four million other residents in our region. That’s why we’re planning a project to install 6.8km of new water pipes.
The pipeline is just one part of an interconnected network of pipes we are constructing across the region, as set out in our Water Resources Management Plan so everyone has access to safe, clean, and plentiful water for years to come.
If you would like to know more about our Strategic Pipeline programme you can see our plans on our website here.
What’s happening now?
We started 1.5km of archaeological digs along the route in June to make sure we don’t disturb anything important when we install the new pipe. These digs are planned to be finished by December 2023.
Last summer we carried out investigative digs along the new pipeline to help us understand the ground conditions, plan our work, and find any existing underground utilities. We’ve also completed various surveys of the area including an ecology survey to make sure the work won’t have an effect on any important habitats or species.
We plan to start the main work in April 2024 and expect to be finished in December 2024.
