The alliance works across SWW’s 11,137km2 operating area in Cornwall, Devon and parts of Somerset and Dorset to upgrade and replace aging water assets, including treatment works, sewers and stormwater pipes.

Projects currently being carried out by the alliance include a £3.5M upgrade to sewers and water overflow systems in the heart of Truro; an £18M programme of works to ensure the continued cleanliness of some of Britain’s most popular beaches; and night works in North Devon timed to avoid disruption to the annual book festival and resulting tourist trade.

Colin Kelly, managing director of Balfour Beatty – Gas & Water, which has a deal worth £22M a year from the extended contract, said: “We’re delighted to be continuing our work as part of the H50 Alliance with South West Water. Our teams have been carrying out some very technically challenging projects in this area, where the important tourist trade and beautiful natural surroundings mean finding innovative methods to minimise disruption and the impact of operations is especially important.”
