Anglian Water is next month set to begin work to install a new pumping station at its existing water treatment site in Pitsford, Northamptonshire, as part of an £8million investment from the county’s water company.
The work will help to improve and enhance the water network in the area, allowing the company to bypass its water treatment works, improving resilience and reliability, keeping taps running in the area for years to come.
The new pumping station, which is situated close to the region’s popular Pitsford Reservoir, will supply up to 630 litres of water per second to ensure that supply to customers is maintained if any interruption is caused to its water treatment facility.
David Hartley, Anglian Water spokesperson, said: "We’re always looking for ways to increase the strength of our processes, and this work is another example of our commitment to making sure that our network is resilient in the face of ever-changing demands.”
The work, which is set to commence from February, is expected to last 10 months and will be completed by December 2020.
Work to install the pumping station, along with a series of new pipes to make final connections to the system, will take place within the boundary of the company’s existing site at Pitsford with no disruption to local road users.
