We’re working with Severn Trent to upgrade water supply pipes in Coventry

We’re working with Severn Trent to upgrade water supply pipes across Coventry.

The water company has launched its ‘Protecting Customer Supply Pipes’ project which is part of their £566 million Green Recovery – one of the biggest recent investments in local water networks and will provide safe, reliable and high-quality water supplies for the city.

Severn Trent are upgrading supply pipes for free for our customers and this will bring benefits such as improved water flow and a reduction in the risk of leaks while helping housing associations and its residents save water and money on repairs.

Our director of asset management Bridget Guilfoyle said: “We’re pleased to be working with Severn Trent to replace old water pipes for some of our customers in Coventry.

“Older pipes are more at risk of leaks and can also narrow over time. This project with Severn Trent means our customers will get new pipes that will save money and water and will improve water flow into their homes.

“The fact that these works are being completed for free is a great help to our customers and we hope they will benefit from the works.”

Green Recovery Supply Pipes project manager at Severn Trent, Mellany Gould, said: “The last couple of years have been tough for everyone, and we want to help. That’s why as part of our Green Recovery, we’re replacing thousands of supply pipes across Coventry for free.

“We want to update our local water networks to make them fit for the future, reduce the risk of leaks, and make the most of our water – which is why it’s great to work closely with Citizen to reach more customers.

“We’ve recently got in touch with Citizen residents to inform them of this great opportunity – all they need to do is sign up and arrange a suitable time for us to come and check their pipes. It’s that easy.”
