Water company begins £200,000 sewer upgrade

RESIDENTS of Caythorpe have been warned there could be unpleasant smells in their village during forthcoming work to improve sewer systems.

Anglian Water will be laying a new sewer which feeds directly into the wastewater treatment works and diverting the existing pipework to meet the new sewer.

At some points during the works tankers will be used on Lincoln Road, Caythorpe, to remove sewage from the network.

The company says residents might notice some odour as a result of the tankering.

Antony Innes of Anglian Water said: “I’d like to reassure customers that we will only use tankers when it is necessary to do so – this should help keep disruption to a minimum.

“We are sorry for the inconvenience that might be caused during this project and hope residents will understand why this work is being done.”

The work is expected to take six weeks.

Mr Innes said: “These works will help to improve the network in the area by increasing the flow of wastewater into our treatment works.

“The increased speed will help stop sewage settling and reduce the chance of blockages which could lead to flooding.”
