30km of DN700, DN600 and DN500 Natural potable water pipe has been ordered for Bristol Water's prestigious 'Southern Resilience Scheme'. A Saint-Gobain PAM UK project team has worked since February 2015 to become the first choice supplier due to product specification and value creation to Bristol Water, Kier and Black & Veatch, deliveries are due to commence from September 2016. The scheme is due for completion by March 2018. Saint-Gobain PAM will continue to work closely within the project team to deliver the best installed cost pipeline, including logistics and training.
The 27 million major new water infrastructure project will provide an alternative supply route to 280,000 people across Somerset and cater for the predicted rise in population of the region.

It includes a new 30km water main between Barrow Gurney and Cheddar, via Banwell, and upgrades to the pumping station at Cheddar and the reservoir at Hutton.
