Work will soon be carried out to clean water mains in Bexhill to safeguard the quality of drinking water.
South East Water is carrying out the programme from the week starting Monday (March 20) and expects it to be completed by April 7.
It is part of ongoing maintenance on the company’s underground mains and will take place in the TN40 1 and TN40 2 postcode sectors.
The process, known as flushing, involves directing water through the pipes quickly to draw sediment deposits out of the network.
This is to remove naturally-occurring, harmless deposits which build up over time.
South East Water’s distribution manager Mark Rice, said: “Flushing our water mains from the start to finish of our network – from our service reservoirs, which store fully treated drinking water, to the point at which it supplies our customers – is a very effective way of cleaning the inside of our water mains.”
