An innovative scheme by Thames Water in Codicote to improve the environment and the lives of customers has been welcomed by the community. During times of heavy rainfall, excess sewage left an unpleasant odour for nearby residents. Now, by working with Stevenage MP Stephen McPartland, the company’s engineers devised a method to ensure all sewage flows into the main system which includes a new pumping station.

Stephen McPartland MP said, “I have been campaigning alongside local residents for a number of years to identify a resolution to this problem. I am delighted Thames Water has completed the works to deal with the unpleasant odours once and for all. It certainly will make a huge difference to Codicote and officially opening a sewage pumping station, was a unique experience."

Thames Water’s Huw Thomas said: “Although Thames Water was acting within its permit with the spillages, we appreciate the impact the odour had on residents. It was not a simple solution but one of our engineers was able to use his experience to develop this pumping method which has provided a solution to the problem. We’re delighted to be able to find a way of helping our customers living in the area as well as improving the environment.”
