Paving the Way for a Greener Future: Lead Pipe Replacement Scheme

Jan 11, 2024

In Coventry and Shropshire, a remarkable transformation is taking place that significantly impacts the environment and the communities it serves. The Seven Trent Supply Pipe Replacement Scheme is vital to their green recovery program. This initiative aims to eliminate lead pipes, reduce leaks, and upgrade customers’ homes with new supply pipes, all at no cost to the customers. Let’s delve into the details of this remarkable project that’s bringing cleaner, safer, and greener water to the region.

Green Project Progress so far

In Coventry, over 15,000 customers have registered their interest in the program, with over 10,000 signing up online. The success is attributed to a robust customer campaign that has garnered over 1 million social media views and counting. Additionally, Seven Trent is collaborating with three local housing associations to address the issue of lead pipes in 5,000 social housing properties. The goal is to make these communities even better places to live. As we enter 2024, 5,500 Coventry homes have been upgraded, offering residents access to the best-quality water.

The success of this project was only possible with the dedication of the Seven Trent team and partners like our team at Brays Pipelines. We’ve invested in innovative technologies to enhance efficiency and effectiveness, showing our commitment to continuous improvement.
