As of February 2017, Yorkshire Water have made some important changes to their addendum to bring it in line with Sewers for Adoption 7th Edition. Up until this point Yorkshire Water’s published design requirements were to Sewers for Adoption 6th Edition. Included within these changes is their Design Specification for the Adoption of Small Submersible Foul and Surface Water Pumping Stations.
Prior to February 2017 although Yorkshire waters addendum was to SFA 6, they appreciated that some of the pump station design criteria was dated so previous design submissions incorporated some of principles outlined in SFA7. The main changes to the pump station design are to the compound layout involving the introduction of an inlet manhole which increases the minimum required size of the compound area from 10m x 8m to 14m x 10m wide. This important to consider earlier on as it may have an impact on the positioning and location of the pump station. Other smaller changes have been made which which will potentially increase the overall cost of the pumping station due to the inclusion of new equipment such as the auxillary suction.
Paradigm will ensure all Yorkshire Water pumping submissions from February 2017 will be completed to this latest addendum.
