Southern Water makes progress on £34.5m rehabilitation scheme

A major UK water utility is progressing with phase two of its £34.5 million (US$44.3 million) sewer rehabilitation project in Thanet, Kent.

The second phase of Southern Water’s rehabilitation scheme will take place between 2018 and 2020 to upgrade Thanet’s sewer infrastructure, which is more than a century old.

The project has been contracted to the TPMD Joint Venture, which comprises Terra Solutions, Pfeiffer GmbH and Matt Durbin Associates.

These works follow from phase one, the first of three phases, which started in Ramsgate in 2015.

The project will cover 170 streets, ensuring wastewater is reliably transported to the treatment works for cleaning, providing a reliable wastewater service into the future and helping to protect the environment.

Prior to rehabilitation CCTV sewer surveys will take place after jet cleaning.

For the majority of the upgrade work, trenchless technology will be used, allowing a large amount of work to take place through existing manholes and avoid disrupting local residents with road destruction.

Speaking to Insider Media, Terra Solutions Managing Director Barry McAllister said the company is making investments in its relining arm.

“We’re investing heavily in our sewer rehabilitation lining division as more and more contracts necessitate the latest techniques and technological advances,” he said.

“We’re now a registered Thames Water framework contractor too, an important status to hold as we continue to grow our presence in southern England.”
