Apologies, the existing pumping main burst late on Sunday night which resulted in NWG having to tanker all flow from the sewage pumping station located opposite Lemon Grove. This emergency tankering operation has continued through Sunday and Monday night while we attempt to repair the burst main.
One of our other contractor’s ESH is currently carrying out emergency repair work on the damaged main near to the start of Mayfair Road. Repair work started early on Monday evening and we expect this to be complete today which will allow us to stop the ongoing tankering operation.
Again, please accept our sincere apology for any disruption caused by this emergency work. While this is coincidental to our main planned work that we expect to start in July, it certainly highlights the pressing need for the renewal of the rising main to prevent further disruptive bursts and protect the environment.
