Reducing the Risk of Sewer Flooding in Batemoor and Lowedges

Batemoor and Lowedges in Sheffield will benefit from better protection from sewer flooding once Yorkshire Water’s investment scheme has finished in the next few months.

Two old sewers which burst, causing sewer flooding near local properties, have been replaced. £1.6 million was spent by Yorkshire Water on a new larger sewer to replace these sewers and reduce this risk of flooding.


The new sewer runs from the sports field near Greenhill Main Road all the way to Yorkshire Water’s sewage pumping station off Jordanthorpe Parkway.


To minimise disruptions, Yorkshire Water along with its contractors, Barhale PLC, has been laying the sewer in grass verges in addition to using a tunnelling technique to lay the new sewer under the road.
