Currently, homeowners may have to spend hundreds of pounds every year for electricity running costs, maintenance and repairs to look after these private pumping stations. They may even have been flooded if it's broken down in the past.
From October 2016, many of these private pumping stations will transfer over to Anglian Water and become their responsibility. They will take over all of the maintenance and the running costs. Anglian Water have asked for our support in letting local residents know, asking people to get in touch with them if they think they have a private pumping station.
