COVID-19 update

In response to the latest Government advice, we have stopped non-essential activity. As key workers providing an essential public service, our employees must continue to deal with emergencies in customers’ homes and in the roads across our supply area. This means all current and planned mains replacement work has been put on hold until we are advised to continue. For more information about how are responding to the COVID-19 outbreak click here.

Dorking mains replacement 

We are investing in an important water main renewal project in the Dorking area to secure safe and reliable drinking water supplies for homes and businesses.

The existing water main was laid in the 1930s and has now reached the end of its operational life. The new water main will provide secure safe and reliable drinking water supplies for homes and businesses for many years to come.

The project will involve laying approximately 1.5km of new main along Calvert Road, Chichester Road, Calvert Crescent, Yew Tree Road and Keppel Road. Our Keeping your water flowing booklet explains the four stages needed to lay a water main and answers some key questions you may have.
