When we begin construction work, our working ours will be 08:00-18:00 during BST and 08:00-sunset during GMT.
We have no plans to disrupt your water supply while we work this project. In the unlikely event that the team accidently disrupts the water supply, our clean water response team will be notified immediately and emergency repairs planned.
There may be some disruption to local roads, footpaths, byways and cycle paths when we begin excavation works but this will be managed with the local authorities to keep access routes open. This may mean traffic management will be required whilst we complete road crossings and the temporary diversions of some public access routes.
Yes, access to properties will be maintained for the duration of the project.
We will keep residents updated through attendance at Parish Council meetings, hosting public drop-in sessions at local village halls and through this commmunity portal.
All construction work presents hazards. We will be limiting public access to the construction site through the use of appropriate fencing, warning signs and supervision.
When the works are complete, the land will be returned to its former land use and, after a few years, it is unlikely that any evidence of our work having taken place will be seen.
During the working hours there will be some noise and dust in localised areas where we may be working at the time. The method of installing a pipeline however is by nature progressing along the route as work progresses and any disturbance in a particular area for a sustained period of time is unlikely. Where dust may be caused, we will use water to damp it down to minimise any disruption.
Yes, at the exit from site compounds we will install either a wheel wash, or provide a road sweeper to keep local roads free from debris.
