£2million scheme to improve Ringwood sewers after winter of heavy rain
5:00pm Thursday 3rd October 2013 in News
SEWERS in Ringwood are to be improved in a £2million scheme to prevent flooding after heavy rainfall which blighted the town last winter.
Wessex Water investigated the problem and told the town council the sewers were not adequate.
Sewerage planning manager David Martin said improvements could include upsizing or duplicating the sewers, and either providing storage or pumping more flow to the treatment works.
Mayor Cllr Steve Rippon-Swaine said: “I am very pleased that Wessex Water has taken prompt action.”
The should be completed by March 2016. The sewers will be cleaned every six months in the meantime to prevent build-up.
