Private water pump appeal

Have your say

A WATER company is appealing for help in locating 4,000 private pumping stations.

From October 2016, new legislation states that Severn Trent will own and maintain the pumps – whereas residents are currently responsible.

Malcolm Horner of Severn Trent Water said: “I know 2016 may seem like a long way off, but we need to find those pumps and start planning to take them over.

“You will know if you have one as you’ll be paying for the electricity and maintenance.” To ‘hand over’ your pumping station call 0800 7934444.
