Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water has announced the appointment of MWH to continue the development of its Surface Water Management Strategy.
This is an AMP5 framework agreement that will extend until 2015. MWH has been involved in this Strategy development since its inception in early 2007.
The ongoing objectives of the strategy are to remove or reduce current surface water and other non-foul flows in combined sewers and avoid or minimise such flows in the future.
MWH project manager Bill Biscombe said: “Working alongside Welsh Water, we have built up an expert and well-informed team to meet their requirements and help them achieve both their short and longer term objectives.
“We are delighted to be able to continue developing this important work and be able to take it in new directions.”
The strategy will be delivered by MWH’s Cardiff-based team. MWH account manager in Cardiff Huw Jones said: “In the short term our proposals are focused on helping the company to reduce flooding incidents.
“However, our longer-term plans will continue to build a sustainable approach to managing surface water.
“We recognise that Welsh Water and its customers in Wales seek two kinds of value for money − improvements to the level of service and a reduction in future bills. All our initiatives will be justified ultimately by these benefits.”
