Welsh Water is inviting its customers in Cardigan to join a virtual information event ahead of its £3.7 million investment project to improve the wastewater network in Cardigan Lower Town.

The work will help reduce the risk of sewer flooding to some homes and businesses in the area, helping to protect the environment for many years to come.

As part of the project, Welsh Water will be building a new pumping station and relief overflow, as well as installing 250 meters of new wastewater pipe.

Contractor partners Morgan Sindall will be carrying out the work in and around the town centre, including St Mary Street, Morgan Street and Carrier’s Lane.

It is hoped this work will begin in October and take up to nine months to complete. These dates are subject to external approvals.

Welsh Water Project Manager, Teresa O’Neill said: “This work is necessary to help alleviate sewer flooding to some properties in Cardigan.

“We appreciate that this kind of work can cause some inconvenience, but we will do all we can to keep this to a minimum and thank people in advance for bearing with us.

"I’d like to assure our customers we will get everything done as quickly and as safely as we can.

“We’d like to encourage Cardigan residents to attend our virtual information event which launches on Monday, September 13 for two weeks to get more information on our work.”

Customers are invited to Welsh Water’s virtual public information event, which is being held jointly with Natural Resources Wales and Ceredigion Council.

The online event will showcase their plans for the area and will be running from September 13 to 26.

During this time there will be two live chat sessions, where customers will have the opportunity to ask the project team any questions they may have about the work.

These sessions will be held on Wednesday, September 15 (4pm-7pm), and Tuesday, September 21 (1pm-3pm).
