Severn Trent water is continuing work in Stock Green to connect the town to the public sewer network. Previously, residents in the town had to make use of septic tanks and cess pits as a method to collect their sewerage.
Earls Common Road will however reopen for one day only so the Droitwich half marathon can take place on the 6th of March.
Severn Trent are working with their partner Morgan Sindall plc on the project, who are constricting the new sewer system in two parts.
The first section of sewer was started in November 2010, with a rising main that was eventually connected to Priest Green Waste Water Treatment works. The second part of the works sees a vacuum sewer installation throughout the town.
Earls Common Road has been closed since the beginning of January to allow the vacuum sewer to be connected throughout the town, and isn’t expected to reopen until at least the end of April, except of course for the marathon runners next weekend.
