Our water mains cleaning programme of works has been ongoing now for five years and to date, we have achieved 221km of cleaning works to our mains. There are a number of pipe sections that we still need to clean, with a total length of 9.0km. We are starting this work in August 2018 and anticipate completion in the Apri 2021.

Update by Joan Tatters

Good Morning

Following on from my last blogg and subsequent letter last month, I thought I'd let you know we are returning to Denton Road Dene to finish the reinstatement as promised as the weather has improved.

Residents should receive the letters over the next couple of days to explain we will be returning Monday 20th April for approximately for 3 weeks. The work will include ground preparation, removal of the stone haul road, grass seeding and fence repairs. During this time the temporary haul road will be used and therefore please use the designated pedestrian access and remain vigilant if you intend to use this area as your allocated daily exercise.

As we are all adapting to these challenging times we will continue to monitor and follow government guidelines (Covid-19) as the timing of our work may vary. Please be assured our site team will be ahering to social distancing and we ask that you maintain a social distance from the team once the work is underway.

Again we thank you for your cooperation and patience during our work and please feel free to ask us any questions you may have.

Please stay safe!!!!!
