Sizewell C helps fund 17 mile pipeline to meet water needs

Sizewell C is to help pay for a huge new water pipeline from Barsham on the Suffolk/Norfolk border to Saxmundham.

The new nuclear plant planned for Leiston says it is starting formal talks this month with Essex and Suffolk Water – which is part of Northumbrian Water – about helping to fund the 28km (17 mile) stretch. The water company has a water treatment works at Barsham.

Once built, the new pipeline would not only supply the power plant but would also increase water availability in the local area.

“It will be sized to provide more water than Sizewell C needs, increasing water availability for the local area too,” the company said.

“Sizewell C will help to pay for the new pipeline, which will be capable of delivering more water than the area around Sizewell C will need by the early 2030s.”

Julia Pyke, co-managing director of Sizewell C, said the new infrastructure would help boost the area’s water resilience.
