New major pipeline through Lincolnshire planned as part of £800m Anglian Water scheme

It would run all the way from the north to the south of the county.

A clean water pipeline is being planned for Lincolnshire as part of proposals for more than £800 million of investment by Anglian Water.

Over £500 million will fund a ‘strategic grid’ of new pipes and this would include a new main pipeline running from Elsham in North Lincolnshire to South Lincolnshire, with an investment figure for the county of £197million.

Some £44 million would also be invested to install and upgrade the Water Treatment Works in Elsham.

The consultation for the plans details £250 million of investment to roll out smart meters across the East of England.

Customers are being asked for their views on the water company’s draft Water Resources Management Plan (WRMP) and have until Friday, June 1 to respond to the consultation.

All comments will be reviewed before the final plan is published.

Anglian Water’s Director for Growth and Resilience Jean Spencer said: “One thing is certain, we will always need water.

“Continuing to manage the demand in the future will only be possible by working with our customers on being even more water wise, stopping more leaks than ever before, and thinking about how the water industry can work more collaboratively in the future. That’s what our ambitious WRMP focusses on.”
