Industry Recommended Levels of Serviceability for Transferred Pumping Stations
ISBN: 1 84057 584 0
Over the next 5 years, the UK Water Industry will be obliged to adopt thousands of privately owned pumping stations. It is important that the industry should adopt a co-ordinated approach so that the Sewerage Undertakers can establish a capital programme that is acceptable to Ofwat.
The UK Sewerage Undertakers have been consulted and an acceptable minimum level of serviceability has been recommended for adopted pumping stations. This will ensure that the transferred asset is safe, reliable and maintainable.
The guidance given in this report can be used as a starting point when identifying improvements needed before adoption and will aid the development of a costed transfer programme.
An Excel spreadsheet tool has been developed in conjunction with this report to simplify and tabulate the process.
