Anglian Water installs first-time sewerage systems in Little Bealings

01 May 2024


A £1 million investment scheme by Anglian Water’s @one Alliance is set to provide homes in Little Bealings with new sewerage systems which will give residents the opportunity to connect to mains sewerage for the first time.

The project will see almost 2km of brand-new sewer pipes and a new pumping station be installed this month and is expected to be completed in autumn 2024.

This scheme forms part of the company’s biggest ever programme of investment. Anglian Water cleans, supplies and treats a billion litres of water a day, and its piped laid end to end would stretch around the world three times – so keeping everything running smoothly is a huge challenge the company faces.

This year, the water company is investing £874 million in pipes, treatment centres, customer service and the environment.

Chloe Bailey Customer Co-ordinator for the project said: “We’re delighted to be able to deliver this project for the residents of Little Bealings. This will not only enable them to simplify their wastewater disposal, but it will also protect the area from flooding and pollutions in the future. We'd like to thank everyone for their patience while our teams are working in the area.”

Residents who have chosen to connect to the new sewer have been contacted by Anglian Water’s @one Alliance contact team.

Whilst this work takes place, engineers will do what they can to minimise disruption. A diversion route will be in place from 7 May for the duration of the works in order to keep engineers and other road users safe.
