The company also intends to spend £36m maintaining, refurbishing and replacing parts of the 70,000km sewer network. £3m of which will be used to survey and sewers in places like Caister and West and East Runton.

And £6.8m will be spent on providing full sewerage services to customers living in rural properties which have never had a connection to a sewer before.

Such schemes are planned for Fulmodeston, Barney, Hillington, Mattishall, Repps with Bastwick, Swafield, Bradfield, Worsted and Little Ellington.

And a share of £17m will be used to prevent leaks.
