In particular, it will align RPS with the water companies’ objectives of reducing flooding and pollution incidents while optimising the balance between capital and operational expenditure.

Clear will join the UK Water Division of RPS which currently provides a range of operational and technical services to the water and wastewater sectors of the UK water industry.

A spokesperson for RPS said: “The acquisition is really all about synergy of services. The acquisition complements our existing service provision which includes leakage management, sewer networks management, wastewater services, water networks management and operation, water efficiency, water resources, surveying and asset management.”

Clear specialises in sewerage modelling, urban pollution management, river modelling, drainage, clean water modelling, storm water management and ecology. The company has a strong track record in undertaking hydraulic modelling and wastewater planning and provides asset management and optimisation solutions to water companies.

“The acquisition therefore, broadens our service offering, allowing RPS to provide both water companies, and the wider environment sector, with the full range of technical and operational wastewater services that are of increasing demand, particularly in the area of wastewater,” said the spokesperson.

Trevor Hoyle, managing director of infrastructure at RPS, said: “The coming together of RPS and Clear creates a truly unique offering in the UK wastewater industry.”
