Birmingham Resilience Project – Severn Trent Water
12th November 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Public Information Session by Severn Trent Water
The Elan Valley Aqueduct (EVA) has been bringing water to Birmingham for over 100 years. It has served customers well, but their regular checks are showing it needs some modernisation and refurbishment.
To allow STW to carry out work on the aqueduct they need to shut it down for a short time. Before they can do this they will need to build an extra pipeline to take water from a new place on the River Severn. This will give us a back-up supply of water to Birmingham during the refurbishment work on the EVA, and in the future in case of emergency.
The work they are proposing to do is called the Birmingham Resilience Project (BRP) and will be one of the biggest engineering challenges they have ever taken on. STW want to make sure you’re kept up to date with their progress every step of the way.
There are three parts to the scheme:
- An abstraction point and pumping station on the River Severn at Lickhill
- A pipeline from Lickhill to Frankley, with a balancing tank part way along
- An extended treatment works at Frankley
