ESI, now part of Stantec, has been awarded a place on Severn Trent Water Limited’s AMP6 Water Resource Planning Framework. Running for a minimum of three years, with an option to extend for a further two, ESI is leading an Alliance of expert teams to manage water resource management, hydrology and hydrogeology projects.
“We are delighted to continue our working relationship with ESI into AMP6. We look forward to meeting our statutory requirements and implementing further enhancements to our water resource management plan to the benefit of our customers.”
Adrean Chavira, Lead Category Specialist, Severn Trent
The AMP6 award follows a decade of work with STWL over the AMP3-AMP5 cycles. Our investigative work in these previous cycles explored abstractions potentially contributing to the failure of water bodies to meet Good status under the Water Framework Directive (WFD). Together with consortium partners APEM and Hydrologic Services Limited robust flow targets for STWL’s affected streams were developed.
The AMP6 framework award follows over 15 years of environmental investigations by ESI with STWL over the AMP3- AMP5 cycles. Our investigative work in these previous cycles explored abstractions potentially contributing to the failure of water bodies to meet Good status under the Water Framework Directive (WFD).
The leading technical skills available within the Alliance allowed our team to develop robust flow targets used to determine how much additional flow would be needed to support streams reaching good status. The work clearly showed that abstraction was usually low down in the hierarchy of pressures and that land use and stream morphology issues needed to be addressed before the benefits of additional flow would become apparent.
Work to assist STWL deliver on its WRMP commitments through the AMP6 Framework includes:
Environment and Hydro-ecology
Water Resource Management Plans
STWL places great emphasis on the role of the supply chain to deliver their business needs. Through this proactive and collaborative approach engagement with the environmental challenges STWL is facing in their current business cycle can be achieved.
By providing real cost-effective solutions, and providing the right service for the process, their customers will see real long term benefits.
