Severn Tent Water appoints RSK duo for resilience programme

Severn Trent Water has appointed two RSK Group companies, Richard Allitt Associates (RAA) supported by Binnies UK to run the catchment planning and management of the resilience of its wastewater network and reduction of flooding and pollution.

RAA was successful in the regional and water industry national environment programme parts of Lot 2 – wastewater hydraulic modelling and catchment planning.

Work will include:

  • model maintenance and enhancements

  • long-term catchment planning

  • supporting the development of the drainage and wastewater management plan’s (DWMP) requirements

  • DWMP delivery and developing catchment strategies

  • modelling (maintenance, enhancement and upgrade of the existing modelling stock)

  • AMP7 Water Framework Directive investigations

  • storm overflow assessment framework investigations.

The water company said it will invest in the framework over the next four years to model scenarios that will inform the design of future investment to improve the wastewater network and assets around the region.

The Water and Wastewater Modelling Framework will look at high-level and long-term plans across the Severn Trent and Hafren Dyfrdwy regions, covered by 14 strategic planning areas based on river basin management districts. These are further broken down into more than 1,000 “tactical planning units” based on wastewater treatment works catchments.

Severn Trent Water Asset Management Modelling Team Lead, Rob Murrell, said: “Part of our environmental commitments are that Severn Trent operations will cause no harm to any stretch of water in our region by 2030. The services supplied through this framework will play a key role in helping us to get there.”
