Southend East - Lead Pipe Replacement Scheme

In February 2019 we’ll be starting our lead pipe replacement programme in the Westbury Road area of Southend-on-Sea. We’ll be replacing the lead communication pipe (the pipe which goes from the water main in the street to the boundary of your property) with a new plastic pipe. For the first time we are offering to replace customers’ lead supply pipes. This is the pipe which is owned by customers or their landlord and goes from the boundary of their property, into their home. This is completely FREE for those customers within the selected area for a limited time only. Phone our lead line to make an appointment with one of our site surveyors 01268 664118.

Update by Daren Still

Just a quick update on our progress so far. The first two streets, Cumberland Avenue and Rylands Road are now fully complete and we are currently working along Westbury Road.

We are currently forecasting that Westbury Road should take us until mid / late June to complete, at which time we shall then be moving to Seaforth Avenue.

Here are a couple of recent photographs showing our work taking place. The  first photo shows some street work in action and the second shows some lead pipe replacement taking place where it enters the property inside a customer's kitchen cupboard . The photo shows the old existing lead pipe and the new copper pipe that is being installed to replace it.
