Residents are being urged to find out more about extensive sewer work going on in Blackpool which will help prevent flooding.

The first of three public exhibitions is being held today at Aysgarth Community Centre, Aysgarth Court, South Shore, between 1pm and 7pm.

Further sessions take place on March 22 and 29, at the same place and time.

There will be chance to speak to engineers from United Utilities about work to build new rainwater storage tanks to prevent flooding, upgrading existing pumping stations and the construction of a new pumping station on land off Midgeland Road.

The project will complement other work by United Utilities which began last autumn at Fisher’s Field.

Steve Wong, from United Utilities, said: “To help our sewer network continue to deal with the demand from growing communities, improve how it copes during periods of heavy rainfall, and make sure it’s kept in tip top condition, we’re going to be carrying out this sewer improvement work in Blackpool.”
