RESIDENTS in Milnsbridge have been invited to a meeting to discuss plans to upgrade sewers in the area.
Yorkshire Water wants to replace pipes beneath a number of streets. Engineers have carried out inspections and believe they need to replace a number of storm drains and overflows.
Preliminary investigations suggest a number of the sewer chambers around Milnsbridge are in need of renovation or replacement.
Yorkshire Water is seeking the views of residents before deciding how to tackle the job.
Yorkshire Water project manager, Dominic Cunney said: "Residents' views are important if we are to keep disruption to a minimum.
"Nothing is set in stone at this stage, but once work is under way it could be difficult to alter our plans. We would really appreciate as many people as possible, calling in at the forum to let us know what they think."
Work is expected to be needed in streets including Morley Lane, Pickford Street, Shaw Lane, Scar Lane and Market Street.
Proposals will be on display at the forum at Milnsbridge Baptist Church from 4pm to 7pm on Tuesday, March 8.
Mr Cunney said: "The heavy rain last summer underlined just how important it is that the sewerage system functions properly.
"If these sewer chambers fail then there is a higher risk of pollution escaping into local rivers and streams so doing nothing isn't really an option."
