Burst Sewage Pipe – A417 Lechlade Road

Please note the following message from Thames Water

We have a burst on a sewage pipe close to the Sewage Treatment Works on the A417 Lechlade Road. To prevent flooding and pollution we need to use tankers in Faringdon to manage the sewage flows. We’re sorry if there is any inconvenience caused due to an increase in traffic or noise and we are making every effort to minimise any disruption caused.

We currently have a tanker at the pumping station in Canada Lane, and possibly may need to use other locations in the town.

While we do not yet have a fixed timescale on the repair of the sewer due to the location of the burst, but we hope to remove the need for the tankers in the next few days.

If you need any further information please call our 24 hour contact centre on 0800 316 9800 and quote BB 969779.
