As part of Southern Water’s next stage of investment in upgrading the sewer system in Ramsgate. Saint-Gobain PAM UK has supplied ductile iron pipe from its Integral range together with an anchorage system. The company’s pipework and anchorage system were specified by the Morrison Utility Services and Galliford Try joint venture known as MGjv.
In a £3 million initiative, Southern Water is replacing a long stretch of wastewater pipe to help protect the environment and ensure wastewater is removed effectively. Currently, a pipeline runs along the seafront carrying wastewater from the Ramsgate catchment to Southern Water’s wastewater treatment works, serving 94,000 people in the St Margaret's Bay, Kingsdown, Deal, Sandwich and Ramsgate areas. When completed, the new diverted route for the pipe line will see the rising main diverted away from the seafront.
