Residents in a Stockton village are to benefit from a sewerage network upgrade.
Northumbrian Water is to invest £135,000 on a 14-week improvement scheme in The Green area of Egglescliffe, which will begin on Monday, June 22 2009.
Ian Cunliffe, Northumbrian Water’s project manager for the scheme, said: “Reducing the risk of flooding is one of Northumbrian Water’s top priorities.
“This improvement work, which will involve constructing 250 metres of new sewer pipe along private farmland, from Manor Farm Pumping Station to The Green, will help to increase the capacity of the network and reduce the risk of flooding.”
During the course of the essential work a rolling road closure will be in place at The Green, near Hawthorn House.
Construction traffic will need access to The Green where the work is being carried out, and the site compound, located at Manor Farm, near Old Hall in Egglescliffe.
Residents in the affected areas will receive information about the work in writing.
Everything will be done, through careful planning with Stockton Borough Council, to keep any disruption to a minimum. Customers who require further advice or have any special needs should ring Northumbrian Water on 0845 717 1100 or log on to www.nwl.co.uk.
It is very unlikely that anyone from the water company will need to gain access into customers’ homes while the work is being carried out in the Egglescliffe area. If customers are in any doubt of a caller claiming to be from the water company, they should not let them into their home. They should ring the company’s customer centre to confirm the caller’s identity.
