Water Mains Replacement

Water Mains

Affinity Water is replacing 4 km of water mains to ensure that they continue to provide a reliable supply of water to customers in Whitfield, Dover. This work represents an investment of £1 million. Some of the existing water mains were laid a long time ago and have given many years of good service. However, they are now reaching the end of their useful lives. By replacing targeted sections of the water mains network, Affinity Water will be able to continue to provide a reliable water supply and reduce disruption to the local community for many years to come.

This work will begin on 19 November 2018 and is being carried out by Kier Integrated Services. This work is due for completion by 16 April 2019. The below map shows where the work will take place. During these works, it will be necessary to have road and lane closures put in place to ensure the safety of commuters and technicians while working.

Any Customers affected by this work will be sent a letter prior to the work commencing to advise them in advance.

Requests for any further information should be addressed to Katie Davey – External Communications Executive on 01707 277110 or email Katie.Davey@affinitywater.co.uk  who will be pleased to arrange for a member of the project team to brief you by telephone or in person.
