We may be heading up your street
Every time you take a shower, flush the loo or wash the dishes the used water is carried along a vast underground network of drains and sewers to our wastewater treatment works, so it can be cleaned and then safely returned to watercourses within the local environment.
With over 72,000 kilometres of sewers to maintain across the North West, we’re carrying out a range of improvement projects and maintenance work to help prevent sewer blockages or flooding and keep them running smoothly.
We’ve been carrying out an extensive programme of surveys and investigations on our sewers. Using specialist camera equipment we can get a closer look from ‘up above’ and obtain a better understanding of the sewer condition in areas where we've identified a problem. The surveys help us to target our maintenance programme and we’re out and about across the North West to clean and repair sections of the sewers. We’ll let you know if we’re working in your community and of course we’ll do all we can to avoid causing any disruption or inconvenience.
