Veolia Water is investing �1.2m to replace 5 kilometres of water pipes in the Wembley this year.
Some of the water pipes in the area are more than 60 years old and are being replaced with durable plastic pipes to help reduce the chance of them cracking and bursting, which can cause unexpected interruptions to people’s water supply.
