AM pledges to monitor success of Welsh Water's £4 million flood prevention scheme in Briton Ferry
WELSH Water has completed a £4 million scheme aimed at ending decades of flooding for Briton Ferry residents.
Now regional AM Byron Davies is writing to people in the streets affected to make sure there are no glitches and urging them to let him know if there are any problems.
The Tory member for South Wales West is also Shadow Welsh Minister for Regeneration, and said he had been in close contact with Welsh Water about the scheme.
Mr Davies said Regent Street, Victoria Street and Shelone Road had been repeatedly affected by flooding from the waste water drainage system, which was inadequate to cope with run-off during heavy rainfall.

"Welsh Water tell me the scheme is complete and that the work they have carried out seems to be doing the trick despite the very heavy rainfall which we have had in recent weeks," said Mr Davies.
"If this long-standing problem has been solved then I am delighted. There is nothing more demoralising than seeing your home full of filthy water.
"Householders in this area have had an awful lot to put up with over the years."
Mr Davies will hold a surgery in Briton Ferry Community Centre today, between 10.30am and 11.30am.
