PEOPLE living in the village of Loxton will benefit from a new sewerage system which is expected to cost £900,000.
Wessex Water is connecting several properties to mains sewerage to reduce incidents of pollution in the area.
The project began this week and is expected to take four months.
Bruce McAuslane, of Wessex Water, said: “Once this scheme is complete Loxton’s sewerage system will be fit for the 21st century.
“This is a major scheme for the village and we are delighted that local residents have welcomed the project and the improvements it will bring.”
Sewage from several properties in the village currently flows into a septic tank which has reached the end of its operating life.
It will be replaced with almost 250 metres of new pipeline as well as a new underground sewage treatment works with infrastructure specifically designed to meet the village’s requirements.
