Headley mains replacement

We are investing £1.2million in an important water mains renewal project in the Headley area to secure safe and reliable drinking water supplies for homes and businesses.

Large parts of the existing water mains were laid in the late Victorian era and the pipes are now reaching the end of their operational life. The new water mains will provide secure safe and reliable drinking water supplies for homes and businesses for many years to come.

The project will involve laying approximately 5.3km of new main high-performance polyethylene pipe in the Headley area (Broome Close, Slough Lane, Tumber Street, Leech Lane, Tot Hill, Nut Ash, Crabtree Lane, Church Lane and Headley Common Road) as well as renewing the service connections to all propertiesalong Calvert Road, Chichester Road, Calvert Crescent, Yew Tree Road and Keppel Road. Our Keeeping your water flowing booklet explains the four stages needed to lay a water main and answers some key questions you may have.
