Work to replace mains water pipes is set to commence this week in Hawarden
Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water will be replacing old iron and steel water pipes with new plastic pipes partly due to a high level of iron in drinking water.
Welsh Water say their contractors will use two gangs who will work towards each other in an effort to complete the main work before Christmas.
However, they have allowed for an additional 2 weeks from January 12 to January 29 (2016) in case they encounter any delays and complete remedial works that may need to be carried out.
The work will involve digging roads and relaying new pipes which is likely to disrupt residents living close by, householders will be advised in advance of disconnections.
Welsh Water will monitor the purity of the water in the new main before connection to properties.
The affected roads with proposed dates are as follows:-
Vickers Close: 21.09.15 – 23.10.15
Fieldside: 21.09.15 – 13.10.15
