Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Who supplies the water to Eshott ?

Q: How is the village sewerage handled ?

A: We have a private sewerage network that connects each property to a central bio-digester, treatment plant and reed bed. The system is entirely natural in operation and fully complies with EA legislation. The system connects every property in the conventional manner. The shared services company is tasked with running and maintaining the system.

A : Properties are served with LPG (Liquified Petroleum Gas) from a bulk storage facility located on the northern outskirts of the village. The network is referred to as a "metered estate".

The shared services company has no involvement with the LPG system.
