Thames Water Demo-Site

Thames Water demonstration site is situated in Reading, England, in the Thames Valley, at the confluence of the River Thames and the River Kennet, and on both the Great Western Main Line railway and the M4 motorway. Reading is 58 km west of central London. The demonstration site comprises 870 kilometres of distribution mains and 172 kilometres of trunk mains located in and around the city, which has many pipes over 60 years old, serving 89.000 commercial and domestic properties. The majority of these mains are of ferrous material at varying levels of degradation, with plastic (PE) mains now used as a standard for full replacement, and ductile iron generally for larger diameters. The trunk mains network consists of 172 km of mains which convey about 45 Ml/d of chlorinated potable water from the treatment works into the distribution network. They include installations varying from 4” (100 mm) up to 32” (800 mm) in size, with majority of larger diameters constructed of iron.
