Merstham mains replacement

We are investing £775k in an important water mains renewal project in the Merstham 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 1.9km of new main high-performance polyethylene pipe in the Merstham area (Albury Road, Southcote Road, Battlebridge Lane, Bourne Road, Deans Road, Endsleigh Road, Manor Road, Albert Road, The Crossways, Nutfield Road and School Hill) as well as renewing the service connections to all properties. Our Keeping your water flowing booklet explains the four stages needed to lay a water main and answers some key questions you may have.
