23 May 2017Looking for Private Pumping Stations in the Parish

Good morning,

We may have some good news for those of your parishioners who have a private pumping station on their property, and have not yet registered it with Anglian Water.

Currently, homeowners spend hundreds of pounds every year for electricity running costs, maintenance and repairs to look after these private pumping stations. They may even have been flooded if it’s broken down in the past.  

As of 1 October 2016, many of these private pumping stations automatically transferred over to Anglian Water and became our responsibility. We have taken over all of the maintenance and the running costs too, saving customers hassle, worry and money.

We’d like to ask for your support in letting local residents know about this, and asking them to get in touch with us if they think they have a private pumping station. 

To help customers identify and report the pumping stations, further information can be found: www.anglianwater.co.uk/privatepumpingstation

We have also produced some posters which you can download here, that can be published in your parish magazines and newsletters, or placed on your parish noticeboards. 

If you have any questions about this campaign, please reply to privatepumpingstations@anglianwater.co.uk.

For any other queries, please contact our Public Affairs Team on public.affairs@anglianwater.co.uk.

Thank you in advance for your support.
