Suhail Abbaas is a water quality and environment manager at Severn Trent Services. He talks about his job and how the team have brought in golden measures to achieve compliance more effectively and efficiently.
Read how our teams worked around the clock to ensure thousands of properties were unaffected by a burst pipe expelling around 250 cubic metres of water an hour.
This case study refers to a treatment works we manage for a customer that supplies treated water to domestic and commercial properties. Every day our team performs critical activities
to ensure a consistent supply of water 24/7/365.
In February 2023, a large burst resulted in around 250 tonnes of water per hour escaping from a three-mile strategic water supply pipe between two reservoirs.
Despite the burst being located and repaired within three hours, it was so severe that it emptied a large reserve of water held in a balance tank. This water would ordinarily keep the treatment process flowing, so the knock-on effect threatened to jeopardise our ability to produce treated water for a population of around 20,000 people.
And what’s more, with air now trapped within the pipeline, the race was on to bleed the pipes before supplies ran dry.
Severn Trent Services employees gathered at Draycote Water – a 240-hectare reservoir and country park – to pitch new ways to deliver even better outcomes for businesses with private water and wastewater networks.
