Cutbacks at Anglian Water have placed a question mark over jobs in Lincolnshire.
The utility company has confirmed it will be shaving 200 posts from its workforce, but has not yet revealed where and when the jobs will be lost.
Some 100 posts will go through “natural attrition”, while 100 people will face redundancy through targeted losses.
Anglian Water employs hundreds of people at its Lincoln office.
An Anglian Water spokesperson said: “As a consequence of the very challenging Final Determination of our business plan for the next five years, we’re having to make a number of operational efficiencies.
“We are doing all we can to look for savings that don’t result in redundancies, but regrettably we will be removing around 200 posts across all areas of the business.
“Most of this will be through natural attrition and by not filling vacant roles, but it is likely there will be around 100 targeted redundancies. Our aim throughout is to protect the core business and the service we provide our customers.”
