Barrow Water Treatment Works, Anglian Water

Delivering excellence
through innovation

As part of wider programme of flood alleviation projects on their utility assets, Anglian Water engaged Total Flood Solutions to protect their Barrow site. Due to the vast area of the site, the ground level varied providing a fluctuation of protection levels ranging 0.65m to 1.20m. Anglian Water already knew which assets required flood protection. The assets concerned were numerous control rooms, generator rooms, pump house, Ultra Violet plant building and boreholes.


The boreholes needed protected by to SR4 under Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) standard LPS 1175. Total Flood Solutions designed and tested a flood-proof, high-security kiosk for Anglian water in order to protect the boreholes from intruder access and terrorist activities.

Scope of works:
  • Three LPCB4 borehole kiosks
  • Full flood protection to five buildings including wall defence and flood doors
  • Large reinforced concrete bund wall around UV Plant
