Water Project 2007

 

SAS proposals to renew the water infrastructure on SS Old and on part of SS New, on behalf of the Council, have been approved by the Finance and Policy Committee. It still has to be agreed by full Council. John Driver has agreed to be Project Manager and we have had to provide a Risk Assessment and Method Statement. The work is planned to take place between 3rd November and 11th November, the weekend of 3/4th November being the crucial time.

 

Briefly, we will be laying a new pipe from the Grantham Mews gate up to C road with stopcocks to isolate each roadway. The metal pipes on each roadway will then be replaced. In order to avoid future expensive repairs, where the pipe goes under Ivy House Lane, the water will be capped off after the tank on plot A35. Finally we will run a new pipe down the central roadway on SS New to supply the tanks on plots New 6 and New11.

 

The water will be turned off for the duration of the work and to comply with the Risk Assessment there will be no vehicular access to parts of the site while the work is being carried out. Pedestrian access will be maintained. This is a major undertaking for the Society. We have to lay about 650 metres of pipe. But it should result in a robust, flexible and reliable water supply for all of us. A mini-digger will be used to excavate the trench, but we will need a lot of helpers to lay the pipe and backfill.
