Sewer Upgrade in The Strand, Ryde – flooding prevention works and upgrade of sewer pipes
Description: Flooding prevention works, which included capacity and upgrade in sewer pipes and a new underground stormwater storage tank.
Challenges: 21m deep storage tank in the middle of a residential area. Possibility of human remains on site, so digging works had to be closely monitored. The existing sewer system carried both wastewater and rainwater.
Key achievements and innovations: Minimal sections of The Strand closed, great effort to keep the local community informed and served. Project completed on time.
