Statement from SWW
South West Water have taken the difficult decision to postpone the planned sewer renewal works in Modbury. Due to circumstances beyond our control we have been working hard to find a replacement contractor in time to meet the programmed works, however at the current time we are not able to instruct the works without a delay to our proposed delivery programme and the impact on the residents, businesses and commuters. So in order to provide the most efficient and successful scheme for everyone involved we have concluded that this is the best decision in the interests of our customers.
We intend to re-submit the applications for January 2024 and our Operations teams will continue to monitor the network and deploy any mitigation measures when necessary.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this postponement, but we feel that under the circumstances this is the most positive course of action at this time.
