Layer to Langford Pipeline

To ensure Essex & Suffolk Water (ESW) can continue to provide a reliable and resilient supply of water to its 1.5 million customers in Essex, it is looking to improve the raw water transfer capacity between its operating areas. To achieve this ESW are intending to construct a pipeline to transfer raw water from Layer-de-la-Haye Water Treatment Works to the existing storage reservoir at Langford Water Treatment Works.

You may have seen our teams working alongside the B1026 near to Abberton Reservoir over the last few weeks. This team has begun to install the 900mm diameter pipeline that we have been receiving from our suppliers over the last few months. Its here that the water conveyed by the pipeline begins its journey south towards Langford WTW.

We also welcomed BBC Essex on the 24th April who were keen to see what we were up to, talk to our installation teams and out Water Director, and to then go on into Colchester to discuss Smart Meters with local residents. IT was a great experience for the project team and nice to show off this fantastic project to improve water resilience in Essex.
