In late January 2007, CRL was awarded the contract to carry out the external and internal refur­bishment of Bowden Service Reservoir, near Chippenham in Wiltshire. The reservoir consisted of two compartments and to minimize any disruption to the local water supply, only one compartment could be worked on at a time whilst the other compartment had to remain ‘live’.

Not only was the programme extremely tight, but the works were required to be carried out in the cold months of February and March.

Due to the short contract duration, it was necessary for the works to be carried out to both the externals and internals of the reservoir simultaneously.
