North Bristol Sewer Scheme – Trym Catchment & Frome Valley
North Bristol sewer scheme - Trym catchment - This is a measure required by Ofwat in the final determination to ensure timely delivery of the Trym tunnel.
If we had missed the initial milestones due in 2017-18, we would have refunded customers £0.97m per year. There is a more severe underperformance payment of £14.1m associated with not undertaking the scheme- there is no risk of incurring this as the scheme is underway.
In 2017-18 we reached the initial milestone by demonstrating, in line with our delivery plan, that the design, consultation and construction of the Trym scheme has been progressed. There is no target for us to meet in 2019-20, but we are on schedule for delivery of the scheme in March 2023.
North Bristol sewer scheme - Frome catchment - This is a measure required by Ofwat in the final determination to ensure timely delivery of the Frome Valley relief sewer.
If the delivery had been delayed beyond 2019-20, we would have refunded customers £1.86m per year. There was also a more severe underperformance payment of £24.9m associated with not undertaking the scheme.
We completed delivery of the scheme in 2018-19, meeting our PC for the 2015-20 period.
