Woodhouses is located just outside the village of Yoxall. A section 101a application was made for a new public foul water sewer for the village in May 2013. The scheme is looking to provide a FWS to serve the village with two pumping stations.
All properties in the area are currently served by private septic tanks and soakaways which are unable to function effectively due to high water table and clay geology. During times of heavy rainfall sewage effluent from the septic tanks is unable to drain away properly.
The new sewerage system will connect into the existing system at the bottom of Town Hill which drains to Bond End TPS before being pumped to the sewerage treatment works in Yoxall.
