Work is being carried out to install new meters and monitoring equipment on our water network in Faversham.

It is part of ongoing maintenance of our underground pipelines and will help us to better monitor the water that flows around our network.

These meters will be able to show us lots of information, including pressure levels and water consumption in an area. But most importantly they will show instantly if there is a large burst on one of our pipes enabling our repair crews to react instantly.

Where will the meters be put?
This work will be taking place at West Street, next to the traffic island at the junction with Tanners Street.

How will you do the work?
Small pits are dug in the ground and the meters installed onto the existing pipework. Once the meter has been installed we will return the road or pavement back to its original state.

Will there be disruption to traffic or pedestrians?
As a safety precaution for pedestrians, motorists and our contractor, we will need to close a small section of West Street. The closure will be between its junctions with Tanners Street, opposite the Bull Inn. A diversion route will be in place and access to homes and businesses will be maintained at all times.

When will you be working?
The work is due to start on Tuesday 12 September and will take approximately two weeks to complete. However, our contractor will try to finish as quickly as possible.

The work will take place during normal working hours, however there may be some activities at weekends.
