March 2023 update

Solum will be carrying out drainage CCTV surveys Somerton from 8th March – 10th March. The majority of the works will be undertaken within the carriageway of Hawthorne Ave and Sycamore Ave on the existing Welsh Water sewer system.

However, access will  be required to the front and back gardens of the Newport City Homes properties located in Sycamore Ave, Hawthorn Ave, Palm Square and Libeneth Road. Solum will knock your door to ask for permission to carry out the drainage survey

The CCTV survey is required to determine the condition, depth and position of all existing chambers within the public system. Whilst carrying out these surveys the drainage will be jetted to clear silt / debris, which will improve the overall efficiency of the system.
