Sewage and Flooding Update

Following local concerns about flooding and sewage issues I and Parish Council colleagues have met with representatives from Thames Water.
We heard that there is plenty of capacity at the pumping station, even given the number of extra houses to be built in the village. When asked about the number of breakdowns at the plant this winter we were told this is due to issues with the electronics and they have this in hand.
The Parish Council’s Estates Manager, Karl Musson, will monitor progress on replacement of the electronics.
As regards the Sewage Treatment Works we were told that plans for an increase in capacity are already in hand. An increase will be necessary as the works treats sewage from Wallingford as well as Cholsey and the number of new houses across the two communities is likely to top 1,000.
