Thames Water lays new Wiltshire transfer pipe

Work began last week to lay a new water transfer pipe between Ramsbury and Aldbourne in Wiltshire to enable better local management of water supplies taken from the River Kennet.

Thames Water sustainability director Richard Aylard said said the work would involve enlarging existing pipework to enable treated water from Ramsbury to be supplied to customers in Aldbourne at periods of peak demand.

“All the water taken from the Ramsbury borehole will be returned to the river after being used upstream at Aldbourne, so there will be no adverse impact on the river environment,” he said. The project, along the B4192 road, is expected to be completed in March next year.
