£3million project shortlisted for an award

First published in News

A project to upgrade a water pumping station and install a new water main has been shortlisted for an award.

South East Water’s £3 million project near Jevington, on the edge of the South Downs, has been put forward for the South East England Engineering Excellence Awards by the Institution of Civil Engineers.

The project includes a new 6.4km water main and the upgrade of a pumping station in Friston.

Desmond Brown, Head of Engineering at South East Water, said: “Both our engineering team and contractor worked extremely hard to plan and deliver this project and they should be extremely pleased with what they have achieved.

“It was not an easy project with tight timescales and environmental sensitivities which we had to overcome, but the completed project is now bringing huge benefits to the local community.”

The winners will be announced at Leeds Castle near Maidstone, Kent, on Friday, June 7.

South East Water lost 95 Million litres adding up to 17 per cent of its total supply,

If we do not Nationlise them soon, the South will just run dry,

When you add it to Southern Water you have a truly dismal pair

I find these dismal press releases only fill me with despair,

Thank your lucky stars they never built those extra houses that they planned,

Or showers, swimming and watering would all by now be banned,

Bottled water would be the norm and stand pipes would reappear

But the shareholders will still do very well, so please now, don't you fear.

The fines are paid by customers, so the Directors don't take a hit,

And they keep on filling our rivers and beaches with our own untreated sh*t

South East Water are the worst company I've ever had the misfortune to be with. They take years to solve a problem and are the most unhelpful bunch ever.

They don't renew pipes when they need to, they refuse to build more reservoirs which are urgently needed and they have the cheek to doubly charge us for water and waste water. Most water companies around the UK only charge one amount, not this lot - they've set up two companies to rip us all off big time.
