Whitlingham Sewer Rehabilitation

  • Sector:Water & Utilities
  • Client:Anglian Water (@one Alliance)
  • Location:Norwich, Norfolk
  • Value:£4m

Barhale were engaged through the @one Alliance to work on this sewer rehabilitation project for Anglian Water. The existing Victorian sewer carrying Norwich’s flow into Whitlingham Water Recycling Centre (WRC) was at risk of collapse. This is the main sewer taking flow from the city so the flow needed to be diverted to facilitate the repairs.

The rehabilitation works required over pumping 190 million litres of sewage a day. Traditional methods would have caused disruptive roadworks and required the use of tankers, but by diverting the flow instead the team were able to complete the work without any impact to local residents.
