Message from Anglian Water re extension to road closure Bergholt Road
Firstly may I thank all at the parish council for any assistance or customer communications you have carried out on our behalf since we have been onsite.
As you may be aware we have encountered some delays with regards to the drilling in of the new water main. Basically the condition of the ground we were drilling from where the large oak trees are on both sides of the road was extremely hard. We knew from the off set that it would challenging but just to put it into prospective we have broken 2 drilling rigs which involved a journey over to Barcelona to physically collect spare parts so we could continue.
All the previous ground condition checks we carried out never mentioned that we had pockets of granite so this was a big surprise and has ultimately caused some delays on the scheme. we have extended our Road closure with the Highways until the 28th of July. The new water main is in place and we are now awaiting our chlorination and sampling results before we can connect the new water main and then transfer the existing house supplies over to the new main.
I have spoken to everyone locally (residents within the road closure, residents in Hazel Shrub and also the residents near to Dodnash Nelson Potter) Would it be possible to put an update on any social media sites that you have, this is a great way to reach out to all those that are living within the area and would update them on the extended works.
