Network cleaning for improved drinking water quality
An extensive programme to improve water quality for customers across Wales.
In AMP6, Welsh Water assessed the acceptability of water across all of their water distribution zones to evaluate risks in the network that cause discolouration of drinking water. They identified 38 priority zones and hundreds of kilometres of pipework that required cleaning or replacement.
Across the zones, 350km of pipes, including 52km of trunk mains and 298km of distribution mains, were ice pigged during AMP6 covering Anglesey, Pembrokeshire and Herefordshire.
The SUEZ Ice Pigging™ team, in partnership with Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water and Morrison Water Services, were proud to deliver this extensive cleaning programme and achieve such significant customer improvements.

This programme of mains cleaning with Ice Pigging™, combined with mains replacement where necessary, has been highly successful and continues through AMP7 in other zones.
