Work will be carried out in Felinfoel and Dafen over the coming months through Dŵr Cymru's £15 million investment in the Llanelli area as part of a new and innovative scheme to manage surface water. The scheme, known as RainScape, will reduce the amount of rainwater which flows into local public drainage systems, therefore reducing the risk of flooding.
In Felinfoel, the work includes installing a combined sewer pipe to improve the existing sewer system and wider network, and a new "storm" sewer will separate and remove surface water from the existing sewer system. Work will also be carried out on the grounds of Bryngwyn School and Prince Phillip Hospital to improve the condition of the existing sewer and reduce the risk of blockages.
Work will begin on 25th of August and will be completed by the end of February 2015. There will be no impact on water or wastewater services. Roads will remain open, but temporary traffic lights may be in place.
