Replacing the water mains

I am writing to advise you that Affinity Water is installing 3 km of water mains to ensure that we continue to provide a reliable supply of water to customers in Great Dunmow. This work represents an investment of £2 million.

This work is due to start 13 March 2017. It is anticipated the new pipeline will take around eight months to complete. The attached map shows where we will be working.

Customers affected by this work will receive a letter prior to the work commencing in their street to advise them in advance.

During these works, it may be necessary to have road and lane closures put in place to ensure the safety of commuters and our technicians working to improve the network in the area.   

Additional information while work is taking place in specific streets can be found online at
