High Street Sewer Repairs - Latest Update 28/01/22

The team have seen the opportunity to do more work in Hemingford Grey to help provide future resilience to the sewer whilst we are on site and excavated. Very short notice, we've been able to get funding to reline 100m of sewers along Hemingford Grey High St. Originally we had planned to reline only 3m. We believe that this is the best option for the residents of Hemingford Grey and it will help to protect against ground water and surface water infiltration on the High St.

The more challenging news is that because this work has become more significant, it means that we will remain working in Hemingford Grey for longer. We will be on site until Friday the 4th February. I have been assured by the project manager that they are very confident in these timescales now that we have a comprehensive understanding of the work required.

The feedback that I've had from the team on the site is that customer in Hemingford Grey are broadly happy. The team have been helping the local shop owner with deliveries and are staying in very close contact with those customers who are very close to the works.

I appreciate you may have some follow up questions, please send anything through to me and the team on public.affairs@anglianwater.co.uk

Thank you for your understanding,

Kind regards,

Rose Shisler
