RESIDENTS from in and around Gainsborough are being asked to keep an eye out as Severn Trent Water is appealing for customers to help them locate a large number of private pumping stations, which will soon become the company’s responsibility to maintain.

A change in legislation from October 2016 will mean Severn Trent will be owning and maintaining these pumping stations, which will be welcome news for some customers who may find them costly and difficult to maintain.

To ‘hand over’ your pumping station just call 0800 783 4444. For more info visit www.stwater.co.uk/sewerownership.
