Emergency drainage and plumbing firm Dyno-Rod has won a £40M contract over four years to manage utility firm Southern Water’s 17,000km of new sewers following this month’s transfer of private sewer ownership.
Dyno-Rod estimated that around 68,000 jobs will be completed each year under the contract. The company will create 60 new jobs as a result of the contract win.
Water companies are estimated to have taken on more than 200,000km of sewers between them on 1 October, when private sewers and lateral drains in England and Wales came under their ownership, as a result of the Flood and Water Management Act.
Dyno-Rod is part of the energy giant Centrica.
