Problems of flooding back on agenda

SEVERN Trent is holding another drop-in session at Crowle Community Resource Centre next Wednesday, August 8, to discuss local sewer flooding problems and explain about the steps the company is taking to reduce flooding.

Zelia Lyne, sewerage manager at Severn Trent, said: “We are continuing to work with residents in Crowle who have suffered with sewer flooding for some years now and we have taken a number of steps in the short term to help, but we are really keen to keep in touch with residents to discuss the issues around the flooding and work with them to prevent problems in the future.”

Severn Trent will be joined by Andrew Percy MP and representatives from the local council at the meeting, 5-7pm. Mr Percy MP said: “Myself and local councillors, John Briggs and Trevor Barker, hosted a summit meeting with Severn Trent and council officers to discuss this important issue.

“We have to find a solution to these problems and that is what we are all committed to achieving. I would urge residents to attend the drop-in where they will be able to ask detailed questions about the investigative works that are being undertaken and find out how this issue is going to be dealt with.”
