Tight budgets and significant investment marked a successful year for Guernsey Water in 2015

Tight budgetary control throughout 2015 has meant that Guernsey Water maintained the same level of expenditure in 2015, compared to 2014, while investing £24 million in the island’s infrastructure.

Guernsey Water’s expenditure remained at the 2014 level of £10.7 million with a marginal increase in income from £15.5 million last year to £15.7 million.
 
Stephen Langlois, General Manager of Guernsey Water said:  “2015 was a successful, stable year operationally and financially, it was also one of change and forward planning for us as a business.

Commercial properties with private water supplies may be liable for wastewater charges

ALL commercial property owners with a private water supply that feeds into the island’s public sewerage network must now, by law, register and pay for this service.

Although the law came into force on 1 March 2015, Guernsey Water is giving commercial properties another three months grace, from 1 September, to declare any supplies to them. If not declared by the end of November, the business may be liable to a £500 per quarter wastewater charge.

Arrival of pipes signals final phase of the Belle Greve Wastewater programme

Nine sections of pipe, totalling more than two and a half miles in length, will shortly be making their voyage from Norway, as part of the final phase of Guernsey Water’s upgrade of the island’s wastewater facilities.

Longfrie Wastewater Network Extension Project to Start Soon

Guernsey Water would like to remind islanders that the next phase of its wastewater network extension programme will be commencing in the Route du Longfrie area of St Pierre du Bois from 29th September 2014.

The project to extend the public sewer will incorporate a number of roads in the area, and will take approximately 10 months to complete. Once installed, the extended sewer will allow up to 103 properties to connect.

Route du Longfrie Wastewater Project

UPDATE – Completion of this project will now be on 7th August rather than 18th July due to rock. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Sewer Lining Projects to Continue in St Peter Port

Guernsey Water will be carrying out its latest phase of sewer lining projects over the next several weeks as part of its ongoing sewer renovation programme.

Working with contractors Environmental Techniques, sewers which have been identified through CCTV surveying as being in need of rehabilitation will be either lined or patched using the latest ‘no-dig’ techniques.

New Manhole Chamber Surveying Equipment to be Trialled

Guernsey Water will soon be trialling state-of-the-art manhole chamber surveying equipment in a variety of areas in the Island during the week beginning 18th August.

The equipment, manufactured in Germany and operated by a UK CCTV survey specialist company Onsite Central Ltd, takes a large number of digital images of the inside of the chamber before stitching them together and producing a virtual panoramic image which can then be interrogated and studied by our engineers.

Vauvert to be Closed for Wastewater Project

Guernsey Water will be continuing its project to install a new surface water sewer in Vauvert as part of its strategic separation of surface and foul water sewers.

The project, which will commence on 19th July 2014 and will necessitate the closure of the upper part of Vauvert for 6 weeks during the school summer holidays, will be carried out by local contractors Geotrant/Geomarine. This is the third phase of the project – previous phases also took place during the summer holidays in 2011 and 2012.

New Director of Water Services Appointed

Stephen Langlois has been appointed as the Island’s new director of water services, bringing with him a wealth of experience from many years working in the UK water sector. Born in Guernsey, the Island is a strong source of identity for Stephen and during this time he has returned frequently with his wife and two children.

A former Grammar School student, Stephen is currently the growth planning manager at Anglian Water, and has over 15 years of professional water and wastewater management experience. He is now looking forward to starting his new role in early July.
