Celandine Drive - Water Mains Renewal

We are working to replace the water mains around Celandine Drive in St Leonards to reduce the risk of bursts.

Update 15 May, 2017

We’ve had some technical difficulties with the work and also some unexpected issues with our sub-contractors. These have now been resolved and we’re making good progress.

What is still to be done?

We have now reached the testing stage, which involves pressure testing and cleaning the new main.

Both these activities require the utmost care which is why we’ve moved the completion date to end of June 2017.  

We will clear as many excavations as possible as we progress through these final stages.

Normal working hours will continue to be between 8am and 5pm Monday to Friday, although there may be days when work begins later or concludes earlier to ensure we get the work completed as quickly as we can.

Once all our checks are complete, we will need to temporarily disconnect your water supply to put you on to the new main. We will give you at least 48 hours’ notice and the connection will take no longer than three hours. 

We apologise for any inconvenience these works are causing and would like to thank you for your patience as we complete these final stages.
