Project Description

Late last year, 800 feet high in the Cotswolds, the Gloucestershire village community of Upper Rissington was faced with low water pressure and supply problems.

With a bright new neighbourhood development underway at Victory Fields, former home of ‘Little Rissy’ Royal Air Force base, the ageing water supply system and pumping equipment was not able to cope with the increased demand and combined with the extreme weather at the time led to periods of water restrictions for the residents.

Albion Water recognised the need for a complete overhaul and upgrade of the water supply pipe network and pumping system and instructed DT Civils, Civil Engineering and Pipeline Specialists, to supply and coordinate the necessary improvements, in particular the water boosting equipment needed to pump the additional requirements for water to the village.

John Jones of DT Civils said, “time was of the essence and we required a single solution for the water pumps, electrical, pipes and connections all under one roof. We chose KGN Pillinger as we knew they would be able to assemble all the components, supply and install a complete booster set and kiosk to specification and within the time frame required”

With a collaborative working association between Albion Water, DT Civils and KGN Pillinger, the residents of Upper Rissington can once again enjoy a constant and reliable supply of water.
