Bristol Water bad luck story

Posted on by in

A £1.3m Bristol Water scheme to replace a major water main has been hit by a series of delays that have pushed the programme back five months.
The Axbridge section pipeline carries untreated water from Cheddar Reservoir towards Barrow but work was delayed as engineers struggled to cope with unexpected flooding, the discovery of naturally-occurring hydrogen sulphide in the peat, and technical problems with a number of the products used.
Those problems meant contractors had to replace elements on crossings to ensure the pipe’s correct test pressure could be reached.
