There may be good news coming for some people if they have a private pumping station on their property.
Currently, homeowners have to 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.
From October 2016, many of these private pumping stations will transfer over to Anglian Water and become its responsibility. Anglian Water will take over all of the maintenance and the running costs too, saving customers hassle, worry and money.
People should get in touch with Anglian Water if they think they have a private pumping station. To help customers identify and report the pumping stations easily, Anglian Water has launched a specialist website: www.spotapumpingstation.co.uk.
