Update by Daren Still

My name is Daren Still and I am the Essex & Suffolk Water Project Manager for this scheme. I and the rest of the team will be posting updates throughout the scheme duration.

We are now are just finalising the final details of planning the scheme and getting ourselves prepared for starting at the very end of August 2017. We are planning on setting up to commence work following the bank holiday weekend on Tuesday 29th August with the first holes being excavated later during that first week. You will be receiving letters approximately 10-14 days before we intend to commence in each street and this letter will explain a little more what we are planning to do and how we are going to do it.

Our work is also supervised by a dedicated Essex & Suffolk water representative who will be on hand to answer any questions and explain in any more detail what and how we are planning to undertake the work.
