Anglian Water – work notice – January 2021

I am getting in touch to let you know about some upcoming work in your local area.

We have work to do at Over Water Recycling Centre

We are investing £380,000 in a project to upgrade the existing water recycling centre off Furtherford Rd. To do this, we will be creating a new and above ground underground storm tank within our site boundary; allowing a larger volume of water to be stored in the event of heavy rain fall.

This means our engineers will be working in your area starting January 2021 for approximately 10 weeks.

Things you need to know

How will this impact me during site set up?Before we start work, we will set up a temporary compound within our site boundary. During this time, you may notice a minimal increase of vehicle movements while we get equipment to and from site.  
How will this impact me during construction?Vehicle movements typically decrease after the first few weeks, but you can expect deliveries throughout our work. As this work is taking place within our existing site, we expect disruption to you and your neighbours to be minimal. During our work we will need to use large machinery and equipment. Due to the width of the roads in the area, clear signage will be in place to notify road users that our site is active.
What hours will your team be working?Our working hours will vary. You may see us in the area from 07:00am, but we won’t start before 07: 30am.We will always aim to be finished by 17:30pm. There may be occasional weekend working between the hours of 08:00 and 13:00.  
How will this affect my water/ sewerage services?There are no planned interruptions to your services during our works.

Why are we doing this work?

We are required by the environment agency to meet a standard level of overflow water for all our sites. This is just one of many projects that demonstrates our commitment to reducing flooding and being environmental custodians.

Because we invest millions in used water treatment processes such as this one, our river water is the cleanest it’s been since the industrial revolution. Nearly 90% of our region’s bathing water beaches have ‘Excellent’ or ‘Good’ water quality.
