Severn Trent’s Newark Waste and Water Improvement Project wins large project category award
Severn Trent’s Newark Waste and Water Improvement Project has won a major award.
The scheme, to renew the town’s ageing waste and clean water pipe network, won the large project category (projects over £10m) at Friday’s Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) East Midlands Merit Awards.
The ongoing scheme was designed to prevent sewers from flooding and will safeguard 400 homes and businesses in Newark, and also future-proof Newark against the town’s continuing population growth as the system, much of it Victorian, could not cope with the amount of new homes being built.
