Have your say

RESIDENTS are invited to find out more about a scheme to replace an ageing water main.

Anglian Water will begin replacing the concrete pipe that supplies water to Ketton on December 15.

The £250,000 scheme will see a new pipe laid along a route that takes it over fields and across the River Welland before following the Ketton Road into the village.

A drop-in session where residents can ask questions will be held in a mobile cabin on Luffenham Road between 12pm and 7pm tomorrow (Wednesday).

Anglian Water spokesman John Clare said: “Our job as a water company is to make sure our customers have clean, safe water whenever they turn on the tap. That means making sure our 37,000km of water mains stay in good working condition.

“It’s a massive undertaking that includes a continual programme to replace ageing mains with newer and more reliable materials.

“The benefits this new pipe gives to people in Ketton should last a lifetime and will hopefully far outweigh any inconvenience.”

The work is expected to last until March.
