WRc to launch new water industry specification

At the beginning of March, WRc is publishing the new 7th edition of its Civil Engineering Specification for the Water Industry (CESWI 7), for use in all civil engineering contracts let by water undertakers in the UK.

It supersedes the Sixth Edition (2004) and reflects the water industry’s requirement for comprehensive, universal and relevant specifications for civil engineering contracts.

WRc technical secretary Sarah Wilcox said: “The specification is based on performance requirements allowing the Contractor to decide upon a method of working.

“This 7th edition has been rewritten to reflect the experience of the UK water industry and the contractors since the last edition was published, and includes new standards and working practices, together with new technologies and more sustainable options”.

The document will be released at the beginning of March and is available to order before release now in both book format and a web-based version.
