Future water pressure improvements in Felsted

At a recent Parish Council Monthly meeting, representatives from Affinity Water gave a presentation explaining their future plans for water supplies in the area. Most notably was the belief that, whilst water supplies are forecast to reduce, demand is forecast to double, due to current house building plans.

The plans included compulsory installation of water meters across the area, with a 2 year period of adjustment before the meters would be compulsorily used to calculate bills. Letters have begun to arrive at households with more details.

Your council also raised the problem of poor water pressure in much of the Parish.

Affinity Water have now advised that they are currently working on a plan for a reinforcement scheme for the area. This would improve the performance of the local network in Felsted, which should increase the water pressure. The timetable will depend on permissions and permits being granted but the scheme is due for completion in 2017.

We will keep you updated as we hear from Affinity Water.
