A Happy New Year to all those concerned for tankers on our roads and pollution in Pillhill Brook. This Report updates from Nov 21. As we enter the groundwater season, we now chat to SW on a weekly conference call to update on groundwater levels, and progress and plans for capital and temporary works. The headline is that in the last two months water levels have not yet risen significantly, suggesting tankering may not be required until end-January or subsequently.

Repair work on public wastewater pipes has recently been focused around Mullens Pond on Wiremead Lane; SW moves to Amport and Monxton through the rest of January. SW has explained plans for review and repair of private sector pipes, and Parish Councils have supported this scope on social media and on the website.

Plans for temporary works to avoid disruption to residents local to water pumping stations progresses but at a slow pace. Repairs were again necessary at Little Ann Bridge, causing disruption in Amport, East Cholderton and Upper Clatford as tankers were deployed for two days whilst repairs were effected.

    1. Hi Ria, the I have found a time table which is as follows:

      W/C 16th & 23rd May – The focus of lining works for these two weeks is in Wiremead Ln. requiring a series of road closures for the duration of each. The work scheduled is as follows:

      • 16th May – One section outside Clare Cottage, just south of Mullens Pond WPS
      • 17th -19th May – two sections at bottom of Wiremead Ln, south of Amport Trout Fishery
      • 24th & 25th May – one section, again at bottom of Wiremead Ln, adjacent to Amport Trout Fishery
