An initiative by UK’s Southern Water, called Cleaner Seas for Sussex, has won two awards from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors Awards South East. The first, the Project of the Year award, is based on best practice by professionals working alongside natural environments. The Cleaner Seas for Sussex project also won the Infrastructure Project award. Southern Water, which provides water and wastewater services for Kent, Sussex, Hampshire, and the Isle of Wight, has invested £300 million in order to bring cleaner seas to Sussex. The plan helps unsure the 95 million litres of wastewater produced each day is treated according to EU standards. The project has taken 12 years to plan. It includes a new sewer tunnel, two pumping stations, and a wastewater treatment plant. Richard Hodgson, the Head of Planning and Performance at Southern Water’s, said: “This is another fantastic result for the project team at Southern Water. It is great to be recognized for all the hard work that has gone in to delivering this magnificent feat of engineering.”
