Doncaster set for clean water boost

Yorkshire Water will soon start work on a project to replace around 3,000 metres of clean water pipes supplying the village of Wroot, Doncaster.

The water pipe has burst on number of occasion over the last five years and this investment will ensure that customers in the area can continue to enjoy some of the best possible drinking water.

The four month scheme will begin on 4 December and will see contract partner, Morrison Utility Services, installing brand new drinking water pipes throughout the village.

The company is keen to share its plans with local residents and will be holding an event today (27th November) at Wroot Village Hall between the hours of 4.30pm and 6.30pm. Between these times, local residents are welcome to drop in, meet the project team and find out more about the proposed work. Displays showing the different techniques used to improve drinking water supplies and the route of the new water pipes will also be on show.   

Communications Advisor for Yorkshire Water, John Bond, said: “This is welcomed investment and demonstrates our commitment to providing our customers with quality drinking water. I hope residents can come along to meet us and find out more; however, if they can’t, we’ll be writing to them again nearer time with more information and as the scheme progresses.”
