Residents in Clipstone in Nottinghamshire can now enjoy the full benefits of country walks thanks to a three-mile-long sewage system upgrade to prevent flooding and reduce pollution.
Heavy rainfall caused the Clipstone outfall sewer to flood into agricultural land near several nature walks. This has previously resulted in pollution spilling into Vicar Water which runs into the River Maun. Severn Trent Water has invested £2.6 million to help alleviate the problems with a system upgrade.
The flood alleviation project through Kings Clipstone village used Weholite, the HDPE pipe manufactured by Asset International Ltd, for the large diameter pipe work.
