To secure a long-term water supply and protect the local environment, Anglian Water is investing in a £12 million upgrade to the water network in East Ruston, near Norwich. Commenced in 2022, the project will take two years to complete and requires the installation of a 16km water pipeline between East Ruston Water Treatment Works and Horstead Water Tower.
The new pipeline will connect East Ruston Water Treatment Works to a new strategic water supply grid, eliminating the need for 2-million gallons of water to be drawn from the Broad Fen, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). When completed the project will ensure more than 5,000 people have access to a resilient clean water supply. egeplast UK was approached by Anglian Water to provide pipe and related products for the project because of its track record with the water company.
