This Scheme Will Mean a Better Water Supply for 40,000
A £120,000 scheme for the laying of a three miles stretch of substitute water main from Cadeby to Clifton will mean improved supply for 40,000 people in the Don Valley Water Board’s Northern Area.
Work on the new main, or a larger diameter than the old, and which varies from 15 to 18 Ins., is expected to be completed in about three months, the “South Yorkshire Times” learned this week.
Giving details of the scheme, a Water Board spokesman said that the work had been necessary because of the “ever-increasing demand.”
The capacity of the Clifton reservoir had been substantially increased, thus giving a greater reserve supply.
The spokesman said that completion would mean a new and greatly improved water supply for the Denaby area.
Among other townships and villages to benefit will be Conisbrough, High Melton, Cadeby, Sprotborough, Old Brodsworth, Hooton Pagnell, Adwick – le – Street and Askern.
