New water main to be laid in Seacroft

Local residents and commuters in Seacroft should expect some short-term disruption as from Monday 19th June we will be installing almost two thousand metres of new water main to ensure customers’ water supplies are not affected by new housing developments in the area. 

Our contractor, Morrisons Utility Services, will be laying the new water main from Barwick Road roundabout to the entrance of the new development at the rear of Seacroft Hospital and the work is anticipated to take up to 26 weeks. 

For safety reasons there may be some lane closures in operation. We will directly notify any customers who may have their water supplies interrupted whilst the work takes place. However it is anticipated that this won't be necessary and we will try to maintain water supplies at all times. 
Emily Brady, Yorkshire Water said: “We appreciate there may be some disruption as we carry out this essential work and we’d like to apologise in advance to anyone who is affected. We’re working hard to keep any disruption to a minimum and our contractors will carry out the work as quickly and professionally as possible.

“I’d like to thank local residents in advance for their patience while we complete this work.”

Customers with any queries about the work can call our Customer Service Team on 0344 9020227 (Monday to Friday between 8am and 5pm).
