CC-lined emergency spillway provides flow control at Water Treatment Works

10 June 2019

 

In August 2018, Concrete Canvas® (CC) GCCM* was used to provide erosion and scour protection to a spillway at Hanningfield Water Treatment Works in Essex, UK for Essex and Suffolk Water.

The spillway measures 12x12m and is situated behind the lagoon, with an aim to control water flow from the lagoon.

Poured concrete was originally considered but a more cost effective and time efficient solution was required.

CC was installed in just three days, accomodating existing concrete infrastructure such as headwalls.
